Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman will be inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.

Raisman, 18, of Needham, Mass., will be among eight inductees into the hall in Commack, N.Y., in April 2013.

Also to be honored at the 21st annual induction ceremony is weightlifter David Berger, who was among the 11 Israelis killed at the Munich Olympics in 1972.

Raisman won a gold medal in the recently completed London Games on floor exercise with her routine to “Hava Nagila” and helped the United States to the women’s team title. She also earned a bronze on the balance beam.

Other inductees in April include sports photographer Andrew Bernstein; Steve Bilsky, the athletic director at the University of Pennsylvania; Bruce Cohen, a National Lacrosse Hall of Fame member; Randy Grossman, a former tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers; and U.S. swimmers Marilyn Ramenofsky and Garrett Weber-Gale.
