    Regarding the praise for Soda Stream in the articles you posted, I am deeply disappointed in the RAC for promoting writers who attack Israeli leaders such as Yossi Sarid and praise a company that illegally benefits from the Israeli Occupation.
    We deserve better from our social action organization.
    Where are our Reform values of social justice?

    I don’t understand why you would publish an op-ed that says to the SodaStream factory, built on stolen land, “should be hailed as a paragon of peace and prosperity”. Surely this is not the view of the Reform movement, is it? All of Ma’alei Adumim was planted precisely where it is in order to cut the Palestinian territories in two and to serve as an obstacle to establishing a Palestinian state with territorial continguity. How can you promote such a thing?
