On display are an American football helmet and a baseball, both signed, and on the wall are pictures of Grundwerg with several prominent figures, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin, actress Gal
Gadot and even the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson – and no wonder, since Grundwerg is an observant Jew.
