PROVIDENCE, R.I.—A monument to fallen Jewish military chaplains will be on display for a day in Rhode Island's capital city.

The office of Providence Mayor Angel Taveras (tuh-VEHR'-us) says members of the public may view the monument from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday on the second floor of City Hall.

Congress passed legislation authorizing construction of the monument, which will be dedicated at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia this month. It will join similar memorials honoring Catholic, Protestant and World War I chaplains.

The monument is on a 10-state, 3,000-mile national tour for those who will not be able to see it in Arlington. Other New England stops include Massachusetts and Connecticut.
