Dr. Brad Kripke is thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as the Chair of the Young Jewish Columbus Board. Dr. Kripke grew up in Toledo, Ohio, surrounded by a small, thriving Jewish community. Brad is a true buckeye through and through! He earned his Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, Master of Public Health, and ultimately his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree all at The Ohio State University. Brad has been involved with Young Jewish Columbus through its various forms for 10 years, originally serving on the social committee. Brad met his wife, Abby, at a YJC happy hour in 2014 and is passionate about giving other young professionals the same opportunity he had. Abby and Brad currently reside in Bexley, OH with their 6 month old daughter, Madison. Brad has served as the social chair, and vice chair of young Jewish Columbus.
