CU Jewish Studies Interns: Ian Solow-Niederman

Ian Solow-Niederman, a Colorado native, is currently a sophomore pursuing a degree in Communication and possibly a minor in Jewish Studies.

What organization are you interning for and what does it/you do?

I intern for Hazon. It works on local/organic food and food ethics from a Jewish perspective. I am helping to plan the first Rocky Mountain Jewish Food Summit April 29th on the CU Boulder campus. Hazon has a variety of national programs including food conferences and bike rides. It’s work is probably best summed up in the Mission Statement: We create healthier and more sustainable communities in the Jewish world and beyond.

What are your goals for your internship, this semester?

I hope to learn more about event planning and how non-profit organizations operate. I also look forward to working with a variety of Jewish and secular organizations partnering with Hazon for the Food Summit.

How are you active Jewishly on campus?

I am in Alpha Epsilon Pi, the Jewish fraternity at CU and serve as a member of the Hillel board. I have also completed the Sinai Scholars program at CU’s Chabad House and am considering a minor in Jewish Studies.

And, the age old question, Coke or Pepsi?

I would say Coke, but as a Hazon representative I should probably say Hansen’s Natural Soda.
