During his childhood in Garden City, L.I., Tyler Barnet, grandson of Herbert L. Barnet, a former president of Pepsi-Cola, knew almost nothing about the company’s adherence to the Arab boycott.
Raised Catholic, Barnet, now 26, wasn’t taught about Israel or anything else Jewish.
“I grew up knowing there was some sort of anti-Israel boycott, but I didn’t know the details,” said Barnet, who spent this week touring Israel on a Birthright trip.
