Grunfeld in conversation with Craig Karmazin,CEO,
Good Karma Brands, and grandson of Abram Matlofsky
NBA player and executive Ernie Grunfeld is the only athlete in NBA
history whose parents survived the Holocaust. A new book written by
his son, former professional basketball player Dan Grunfeld, details
their family’s history and extraordinary American story, as well as
the profound impact that basketball has had in their lives. Ernie
Grunfeld was ten years old when his family immigrated to America from
Communist Romania, with no knowledge of English and having never
touched a basketball. Roughly ten years later, he stood on the podium
as an Olympic gold medalist for the United States.
Abram Matlofsky Memorial Program is made possible through an
endowed gift from the Karma Foundation, led by Sharon M. Karmazin
(DC'67, SC&I'69), Dina Elkins, and Craig Karmazin. Established at
the Bildner Center in 2000, this annual program honors the memory of
Sharon's father and focuses on American Jewish culture. We are
grateful to the Karma Foundation for its generous support.
