Congregation Neve Shalom will hold a Selichot service at 8:15 p.m. on Sept. 1 at the temple, 250 Grove Ave., Metuchen.

There will be prayers in the styles of today’s independent Minyanim. Guest percussionists will join Rabbi Eric Rosin and Hazzan Sheldon Levin in a participatory service. This will include traditional texts and tunes and new settings and meditations.

The service will followed by a reception.

At 9:15 “Bogdan’s Journey” will be shown. In a story that begins with murder and ends with reconciliation, one man persuades the people of Kielce, Poland, to confront the truth about the darkest moment in their recent past: Kielce is the site of Europe’s last Jewish pogrom.
