Oneg Shemesh: Shine It Forward

by JMDerech December 24, 2009

onegshemeshband

ONEG SHEMESH is an original member of the MOSHAV BAND.  He produces music with an edge, combining contemporary hip concepts with classic Jewish midrashic kabbalistic and scriptural sensibility. Among his musical mentors is the Father of modern Jewish music, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. 

He grew up in Israel on Moshav Mevo Modiim founded by the late Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach, Z”L. He had the great privilege of spending much of my time with the Rebbe, accompanying him on guitar and drawing from his wealth of knowledge.

After finishing his army career, he joined The Moshav Band and toured with them throughout Israel, the United States and Canada. He is presently living in New York, where he has been performing concerts wherever Jews are found. In addition, he has been leading Shabbatonim and Holiday Davening using the chazanut nusach of Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach, bringing joy and happiness to communities around the world while trying to live up to his name ONEG, which means utmost joy.

His music is not just a melody with words, his music is prayer. Our sages teach us that singing the words is like praying twice; the first time for the words themselves, and the second time for the song. This is the highest form of prayer. He hopes that his music finds you wherever you are and reminds you how beautiful is our Judaism, how beautiful is our tradition, and how beautiful is our love for Hashem
