Can JIRA issue belong to multiple epics ?

We have a need to include Issue into more then one Epic in JIRA. However Epic Link is a single selection field in Issue edit screen. Is that possible at all to have one to many reletionship from Issue to Epic and how ?

Thank you much for your help.

So as Issue can not be included into more then one Epic we ended up using Links of types 'child task of' & 'parent task of' to link issues together. These links can have 'one to many' relationship exactly as we need. Also with ScriptRunner plugin installed we can use links in JQL queries.
