SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

Okay, so it’s been a little wet and chilly recently and schools across metro Atlanta are already open. So the folks at Temple Kol Emeth (TKE) think it’s a perfect time to celebrate.

NoshFestThat’s why they’re inviting all their friends in East Cobb to a party over the long Labor Day Weekend – the Fourth Annual Nibble & Noshfest. The fun and festivities this year will fall on Sept. 1  and 2 in the Parking lot of TKE. Here are the highlights:

It’s a children’s fair. There will be inflatables, games, and face painting to keep the kids happy for hours!

It’s a music festival. Lots of entertainers this year will be featured on the big stage for two days straight. Some of the best local talent around is coming to this year’s festival.

It’s a crafts show. Some of the most creative vendors in the area will be around, selling artwork and handmade goods for your shopping pleasure.

It’s a religious education. Nibble & Noshfest is your chance to learn everything you always wanted to know about Judaism in East Cobb but were afraid to ask. Take tours of TKE’s sanctuary and learn the mystical meaning of the architecture.

Rabbi Steven Lebow and Rabbi Erin Box will be around much of the time to offer insights into the community’s beliefs, the congregation, and the temple’s place in the community.

It’s a night of comedy. Nibble & Noshfest will continue into the evening this year, laughing into the night Sept. 1st with the Adult Improv Group from The Red Door Playhouse.   The event begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at www.noshfest.com.

Of course, best of all, Nibble & Noshfest is about the nibbling and the noshing. Imagine Taste of East Cobb with a yiddishe accent. More than a dozen great eateries will be offering sample-size treats for $1 to $4.
