I couldn't find a decent job, was in depression didn't hav money...When I came to COJECO LEadership Group I enjoyed all sessions as well as meetings with interesting people - the members of the Group. The result was unexpected: co-leader I've met in a Group invited me to interview at her company. So I've got an offer, and now I work at this company about 4 years - and I'm happy. Thank you COJECO for help and support. COJECO really has a right to be calld Great Non-for-profit organization. (entered by a GreatNonprofits staff member from a paper review form)

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

an organization that helps our community for free. Community needs help: elderly people and kids always are in need, after 9/11 and during the recession many working people became in need too. COJECO speaks with us in Russian and we feel not alone.

Our group (over 20 senior citizens, living in Riverdale, Bronx, NY) is very grateful to COJECO and personally to Victoria Anesh and Rimma Kharlamov. They are our real friends. They inform us about exhibitions, festivals and concerts of Folksbiene Theater when the tickets are free or with a big discount. We never forget exhibition of Mark Chagall in Jewish Art Museum. It was so interesting to see Chagall's art, decorations for Russian Jewish Theater, and portraits of famous Russian Jewish actors of terrible destiny during Stalin's terror. When we were on the concert of Folksbiene we felt like a real part of Jewish nation. It was unbelievable atmosphere on the stage and around. We also participated in the parade Salute to Israel and commemoration days of Holocaust. All good things in our community COJECO did for us.

make a sphere of services much wider and accept GUILD as COJECO member organizations.

I coordinated and organized a leadership program and other events for Russian speaking Jewish young professionals with COJECO's expertise and help. I witnessed first hand how the resources available through COJECO together with its dedicated professionals and board, create an impeccable connection to the Russian speaking Jewish Community. For example, COJECO was able to gather over 100 Russian speaking Jews from New York City to attend a private discussion with the Israeli Consul General to NY, Asaf Sharif. COJECO was not only able to coordinate the community to this amazing event, but was able to connect to Mr. Sharif and able to get him to agree to speak specifically to the community and organize his speech accordingly. It was accomplishments such as this that encouraged me to continue to be involved with COJECO and the Russian speaking Jewish community.
