Sheldon I. London


Sheldon I. London, of the Washington area, passed away on Jan. 13. Shelly was born on Feb. 13, 1938, in Norwich, Conn. Shelly came to the Washington area with his wife, Marge, in 1964 from Connecticut. He was a proud graduate of Dartmouth College with a law degree from University of Connecticut. He was general counsel and “Washington expert” to a number of trade associations as part of his legal practice.
He, together with Marge, played an important role in the growth of the Mid-Atlantic Region of the American Associates of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (AABGU) and was on the National Board. As far back as 1948, when he was selected to read its Declaration of Statehood at his synagogue in New London, Conn., Israel was a constant touchstone for him.
Beloved husband of Margery for 57 years; father of Matt (Joanne) and Eric (Holly); and grandfather (pop pop) of Rachel, Eve, Ben and Zoe. Contributions may be made to the AA4BGU or Congregation Beth El of Montgomery County. Arrangements entrusted to Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home.
