"We need to learn to live together no matter how difficult that is,
starting with these kids," Reimers said. "In any conflict, you should
look at the other side. By learning what their pains are, what their
problems are, we can try to work out a livable compromise."
The program is aimed at preparing people for the Jewish High Holidays:
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur -- holidays that represent a time to
reflect, resolve conflicts, apologize to enemies and examine how to
better serve others, Reimers said.
"This is to get us in the mood for the High Holidays," Reimers said.
"During this time, we need to really look and examine our consciousness
on a personal and communal level."
The program is open to the public and begins at 9 p.m. Saturday at
Burbank Temple Emanu El, 1302 N. Glenoaks Blvd.
After the program, a religious service will begin at 11 p.m.
