COJECO has done phenominal work in helping recent immigrants from the former Soviet Republics adjust to life in the United States. The theater company that I work for often partners with COJECO to provide free tickets to our performances, especially to older and impoverished people.

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.
