Washington – A memorial commemorating US Jewish chaplains who died in battle will be erected at the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, Congress decided on Thursday night.

“This memorial will be a fitting commemoration of 13 chaplains who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation,” bill sponsor Sen. Charles Schumer said.

Every day, military chaplains risk their own safety and security to provide essential support to our deployed service members. Those who have lost their lives in the line of service deserve our highest respect, and I am so pleased that we were able to pass this legislation through the Senate.”

The legislation is the culmination of a three-year effort by the Jewish Federations of North America, the Jewish Welfare Board, the Jewish Chaplains Council of the JCC Association of America and dozens of other national and local organizations that lobbied US elected officials to pass the bill.

“With congressional approval, we are eager to begin construction of the memorial to these fallen heroes and look forward to visiting Chaplains Hill in Arlington National Cemetery in the near future to pay tribute to them and their contributions to our nation’s history,” said William Daroff, director of the Jewish Federations’ Washington office.
