COJECO (Council of Jewish Émigré Community Organizations) is the central hub of the Russian-speaking Jewish community in the New York tri-state area. Our mission is to convene and connect the Russian-speaking Jewish community through collaborative leadership, innovative engagement, Jewish education, capacity building, and preservation of heritage.
COJECO is gearing up for an amazing 23-24 program year. COJECO Network Organizations are welcome to submit their requests for funding. A new Cohort of B'nai Mitzvah Family Journey is getting ready for an Opening Retreat on September 8-10, followed by engaging learning sessions, mitzvah projects, beautiful ceremony in NY, and Israel Experience.
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.
