Koran by Heart


In honor of the first night of Ramadan, HBO will showcase a new documentary “Koran by Heart”.   Much like “Spellbound” this documentary depicts the lives of 10 students as they study and recite whole passages of the Koran in competition.  I’ll be watching it for the first time along with the rest of the TV -viewing audience.  If your kids are old enough – watch it together.  It’s a new window into a population of more than 1 billion people.


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
