Nu, you’re looking for a bissel to ess? Don’t mean to be a noodge, but you’d be meshugana to miss Noshfest.

Translated from Yiddish to English: So, you are looking for a small bite of food? I do not mean to be a pushy individual, but you would be crazy to miss Noshfest.

The two-day food event in the parking lot of Temple Kol Emeth at 1415 Old Canton Road in Marietta offers sample-size portions of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and classic Eastern European Jewish fare.

The event runs Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Now say it with me, "zei gezunt!" it is pronounced "zay gehzunt" and means "be well" in Yiddish.
