The St. Louis Jewish Sports Hall of Fame was made possible by the family of Isadore Beilenson and dedicated to his memory on July 12, 1992. Isadore was a truly remarkable athlete and leader who possessed a community-minded spirit. Individuals from the St. Louis area selected for induction serve as role models for the youth of today because of their achievements, outstanding character, leadership skills, and commitments to the highest standards of sportsmanship. Past inductions have occurred in 1992, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2005, 2010 and 2014.
