BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH top

 Abraham S. Braude was born to Dr. Morris and Dorothy Braude of Chicago, Illinois in 1920. His family was extremely observant, in part because his paternal grandfather was a rabbi. Braude came to Cincinnati to receive his education at the College-Conservatory of Music. Although he retained his interest in music, following his military service in the Army Air Corps during World War II, he became more active in the business and Jewish communities.

Braude was vice-president of marketing for Gruen Wach Company for ten years before becoming vice-president and part-owner of the Hartmann Luggage Company in Racine, Wisconsin. He returned to Cincinnati in 1961 as the vice-president of J.S.I. Incorporated. From 1973-1980, Braude did marketing consulting. Braude served in numerous Jewish organizations, including president of the Wise Temple in Cincinnati, member of the American Jewish Committee, and chairman of both Cincinnati Bonds for Israel and the American-Israel Culture Foundation. He was appointed to the Board of Governors for HUC-JIR in 1974. He helped to create the secondary Board of Overseers for each campus in the mid-1970s and in 1982 was acting chairman of the Board of Governors.

Abraham Braude married Marilynn Katz in 1943. They had three children: Stephen Edward, Marjorie Karen and Jonathan Paul. He died of complications from lung cancer in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1994
