Cosmonaut Might Toast L’chayim

A Soviet cosmonaut has ordered Israeli beer for his next trip into space.

Alexander Soroborov developed a taste for the local brew on a visit to Israel six months ago. He asked for several bottles to take on his next mission, in a letter to Ru’i Weinstein of the Haifa Tourist Development Association.

Weinstein had two bottles sent to the cosmonaut’s Moscow address on Friday.
