COJECO is a central coordinating body in the Russian Jewish community of NY that works towards the successful integration of Russian Jews into American Jewish life.  Together we are working towards achieving the Jewish communal goals of caring for those in need, strengthening bonds among the Jewish people, and fostering Jewish identity and renewal.
With 33 member organizations and a slew of community programming projects, COJECO has become the go-to-place for the Russian-speaking Jewish community.

Member Organizations – we support our 33 member organizations through grants, advocating on their behalf, providing logistical and financial support, connecting them to other potential funders, and providing support in implementation of programs and projects.

Project Gesher - provides positive informal Jewish educational experiences to Russian-speaking Jewish children attending private day care centers in New York City where Gesher-trained Russian Jewish college students serve as teachers. The initiative is based on the "for the community by the community" philosophy and helps both children and their young role models develop a positive Jewish identity.

Center Without Walls – works to promote and strengthen the dialogue between Russian speaking Jews and the American Jewish community. Our work helps various Jewish organizations in the New York City area attract and work successfully with American Jews from Russian-speaking families while introducing Russian-speaking Jews to the richness of the American Jewish community.

Prins Foundation – a program that assists Jewish professionals from the former Soviet Union to come to the United States and rebuild their professional and personal lives.

MiniGrant Project – A project of Center Without Walls that gives unaffiliated creative Russian-speaking Jews the ability to build their own innovative community projects.

Leadership – COJECO hosts and sponsors numerous leadership initiatives and fellowships that help reinvigorate the young Russian-speaking Jewish community through educational and leadership training seminars, workshops, trips, and lectures.

Advocacy – we provide effective advocacy and representation for the Russian-speaking Jewish Community by working with social, state, and federal organizations.
