What did Israel’s founders think of carbonated beverages?
Did Theodor Herzl sample the sodas of the Swiss-based Schweppes company during the first Zionist congress in Basel?
Did the Milwaukee-raised Golda Meir refer to it as “pop”?
Certainly David Ben-Gurion would have approved of the brew-it-yourself soda mentality behind SodaStream, the Israel-based home carbonation kit.
So it’s appropriate that SodaStream celebrated Yom Ha’atzmaut this year with a limited edition set of bottles featuring the faces of Golda, Ben-Gurion, and Herzl.
Luckily for Diaspora Zionists, they’re available for sale in the U.S. through SodaStream’s web site.
