COJECO was founded to conduct research to further the enrichment of the Russian-speaking Jewish community. It was founded in 2001 for the research and identification of methods for the successful integration of Russian-speaking Jews into the greater American Jewish community, while preserving the Russian Jewish population’s unique cultural heritage.
Masks For Doctors Initiative is collaborating with COJECO to deliver protective gear to doctors and nurses fighting COVID-19. In just a few weeks the initiative has grown into a completely volunteer-run organization that provides PPE to the most vulnerable populations within the healthcare system.
We offer unique programs for Russian-speaking Jews to engage with the community on their own terms, encouraging identity exploration, informal Jewish education, leadership training, and volunteering.
