Jason Mesches is so excited to share his debut album, "Oneg Time," a collection of original, family-oriented Jewish songs. Born in New Jersey and raised at Jewish summer camp, Jason has drawn on his own experiences as a child to bring a new sound and style to the world of accessible family music.
Jason is a proud alumnus of the URJ Camp Harlam where he was both camper and counselor for 11 life changing summers. He is the recipient of the Charles Alpert Award for Excellence & Devotion in Jewish Life and an NJ State Governor's Award for his participation in creating Shabbat Hallelu at Temple Emanu El in Westfield, NJ. He teaches Jewish music to children ages 7 months to 7th grade at Wilshire Boulevard Temple and Temple Judea in sunny Southern California.
Jason attended Syracuse University and lives in Santa Monica, CA. If you look hard enough you can find him on episodes of TV's "The Big Bang Theory", "Monk", "Castle" and more!
