UNESCO has sponsored a major operation launched by the Aladdin Project Association to promote a reciprocal knowledge of religions.

At the heart of this religious training project for peace and tolerance is the writing of the book, Knowing the Religion of the Other, written by Chief Rabbi Alexis Blum, Bishop Claude Dagens and Dr. Waleed El-Ansary, published by Parole et Silence, which will be presented during this event.

The Aladdin Higher Monitoring Committee is chaired by the former Chief Rabbi of France, René-Samuel Sirat; the former Archbishop of Paris, Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, and the former Grand Mufti of Egypt, Dr. Ali Gomaa, member of the Supreme Council of Al-Azhar.
