Calling all kids!! Wintertainment promises to “make up” for the week’s Snow Days with active fun on Jan 26th in Morristown

 With the temps plummeting and the snow piling up this past week, timing couldn’t be better for the inaugural Wintertainment for Kids, hosted by Temple B’nai Or in Morristown. Join other local families at this fun event, which is open to the public and designed for elementary-age children.

Wintertainment features three headlining entertainers, including:

  • Simon the Magician, a highly sought after comic magician delighting crowds for over 20 years. His client list includes Google, Macy’s, JP Morgan, Princeton University, and Mercedes Benz Financial and children of all ages.

  • Gwen Genacarelli, a popular local fitness and dance instructor who will get the crowd moving with a group hip-hop style dance using movements she will teach, and movements the kids will “free-style.”

  • And Mag Irizarry, a health and fitness expert from The Club of Morristown and popular coach at Newark Academy, who will keep the kids moving with an interactive sports clinic.

Arts and crafts activities will be ongoing throughout the day, including a pre-K craft room catering to younger family members. Healthy snacks and drinks will be available for purchase at a concession café.

Kids must be accompanied by an adult, but that’s OK – we have fun in store for the parents too! Adults can partake in chair massages and learn from local nutritionist Debbie Weinstein, who will discuss recipes and nutritional advice, emphasizing immunity building foods and conduct a cooking demo in the TBO kitchen. Or you can just relax and catch up with friends and see the current photography exhibit in the concession café – also known as the Linda Grandis Blatt Gallery at Temple B’nai Or.

Make giving back a part of this fun experience. The Temple will be collecting gently used coats for a NJ Cares annual coat drive. Bring an outgrown or ready to retire coat to donate to kids and adults in need of warmth across New Jersey.

Wintertainment takes place on Sunday, January 26th from 2 to 4:30 pm at Temple B’nai Or (60 Overlook Rd, Morristown, behind Thomas Jefferson Elementary School). Tickets are $10 per child.  Children under 3 years old are free.  Parking is ample and free! Children must be accompanied by an adult.  Main Event activities are geared for kids K – 5th grade.  Tickets are limited, so buy yours today at

Event sponsors include Glassworks Studio (151 South Street, Morristown), Encore Catering (, Debbie Weinstein, nutritionist, and Suzi Press, DMD and Children’s Dentistry of Morristown (95 Madison Ave, Morristown).

Debbie is going to have a table set up in the Concession area (gallery) with recipes and nutritional advice for moms.  She said she’s going to focus on immunity building foods, which I think is great! She’s also like to do a cooking demo in the kitchen for the first 10 or so moms that sign up, but I have to see how that could work in the kitchen. 


So far the sponsors are:


Encore catering

Debbie Weinstein, nutritionist

A dentist (hopefully)

Greg & Cory Pine

Paul & Catherine Rosenthal

The Axler Family in memory of her father

David and Randi Silverstein are sponsoring the craft rooms

The Temple B’nai Or Senior Youth Group will be manning a healthy concession stand


Not sure if you want to mention the people sponsors. 


Also, I believe we’ll be asking people to donate old coats to Jersey Cares coat drive.  I need to confirm that with Jess Temlock Fields.
