NEW YORK (SBN) — Legendary Israel-based musician Gilad Segev is launching a North American tour beginning May 9 in New York City with an immersive concert experience to honor the Jewish heroes of the tragic October 7th attacks in Israel.

Kicking off in NYC on May 9th at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, Edmond J. Safra Hall, the Project HEROES concert offers a unique journey celebrating the bravery and resilience of these Jewish heroes.

Through original video & music created by Gilad and the families of these heroes, Project HEROES is more than music—it’s a tribute to the courageous souls who sacrificed everything to save others.
