Blair Nosan

Blair Nosan is the creator of the Detroit based fermented food business, Suddenly Sauer. As an alum of ADAMAH: the Jewish environmental fellowship, and a food justice activist, Blair strives to build her food business with social, communal, and environmental values. Blair is also deeply engaged in the Detroit Jewish community. She is a board member of the last free-standing synagogue in Detroit (the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue) and the chair of their Education and Social Action Committee. She spends much of her free time pondering the myriad ways that Judaism's long tradition of justice can help inform redevelopment in the city of Detroit. Blair is thrilled to be program leading for JFSJ, both as a vehicle for spreading her love of pickles, Judaism, and her home city of Detroit, and to work alongside young adults in creating a thriving vision of a just world.
