The monument shows the three religions with three figures symbolizing the example of religious tolerance, the figures are: Rashi – a great interpreter of the Bible, Bernard of Clairvaux – the father of the Trappist Order, Saladin – the Ayyubid governor who showed great generosity to the Crusaders.

According to tradition, pilgrims place a stone next to the monument, thus placing a part of their heart in strengthening interfaith tolerance.
