Joel Pirchesky was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mr. Pirchesky's greatest spirit has been his entrepreneurial one, and in 2006, he founded the internet business, One World Blue, LLC, with the establishment of the first online retail site. The long term and overall goal for One World Blue has been to create a social media platform that will enable all people and institutions the ability to raise funds for themselves, share their innovative ideas and worthy causes to the world, and mobilize others to stand and unite around them. As The One World Blue Good Network, the Social Network for Social Change, it is also a platform to spotlight the good individuals have done to transform the world, celebrate and appreciate cultural diversity, showcase the beauty of the world and bring attention to endangered species and habitats, and to act as a catalyst for conflict resolution thru the Overture to Peace module. First in 2008, the One World Blue Web Portal Program was created and it allowed any sole-proprietor or non-profit organization the ability to generate income through the Affiliate Marketing Program with the One World Blue Store. In 2010, the plan was begun to put into place the revolutionary main concepts of this social media platform which was given the name Blupela.com, The One World Blue Good Network. After over three years of research, development and investment into this transformative network, Blupela.com offers a revolutionary social networking experience. Unlike traditional Crowdfunding and social networking platforms, it provides a dynamic and comprehensive service by utilizing innovative tools to connect people and ideas with the goal of improving the world one good deed at a time. As the progression of The One World Blue Network has evolved, in December 2014 Mr. Pirchesky completed his Master’s program at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh. He earned his Master’s in Public Policy and Management, with a focus in International Development, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. Mr. Pirchesky’s commitment to establishing a worldwide platform of improving the world one good deed at a time fits in line with the goals of International Development. He will also work in the area of Global conservation, cultural diversity awareness and training, and conflict resolution with the tools he and his team are designing for The One World Blue Network.

I am happy to spotlight Oneg Shemesh! He is to me a very pure soul. He has a great heart. He prays with sincerity and he has a beautiful voice. What talent. He truly carries on the spirit of his Rebbe, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, who was also very dear to me. When I visited the moshav many years ago, I was blessed to pray there and to find that the gate of tefillah (prayer) at the Carlebach Moshav was one of Love. True and Pure Love. That was Reb Shlomo. I am happy to say that I find that spirit in Oneg. He has been taught well and carried on this tradition of Ahavas Yisrael and also Love of all of Hashem's creation.
You can find his music at http://www.onegshemesh.com/ and order online.
This one is a favorite of my wife Baila, and I, myself. I thank her so very much for teaching me so many things over these past six years. She has truly completed me and my purpose for existence.
Here is a bio for Oneg. Please enjoy the video at the end:
Having shared the stage with countless great Jewish music stars, among them hassidic reggae star Matisyahu, as well as Soul Farm, and Moshav band, Oneg produces music with an edge, combining contemporary musical concepts, styles and sounds with classic midrashic, kabbalistic and scriptural inspiration.
Among his musical mentors is the Father of modern Jewish music, the legendary Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, and those early days together were some good and very special spiritual and musical times.
In his own words: “I grew up in Israel on Moshav Mevo Modiim founded by the late Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach, Z"L. I 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 my army career and service, I joined The Moshav Band (as a founding member) and toured with them throughout Israel, the United States and Canada.”
He is presently living in New York, and does concert performances wherever Jews are found (or lost...). In addition, he leads Shabbatonim and Holiday Davening using, among other styles, the chazanut nusach of Reb Carlebach, bringing joy and happiness to communities around the world while trying (and succeeding!) to live up to his name ONEG which means utmost joy. Among his biggest admirers are his 3, beautiful children.
“My music is not just a melody with words, my 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. I hope that my 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.
