We spoke with Lisa Klig of Council of Jewish Emigre
Community Organizations (COJECO), which supports the Russian Jewish
Community of New York. A large portion of the 250,000 Russian Jews
living in New York live in Southern Brooklyn which got hit hard by
Hurricane Sandy.

“We’ve had an incredible outpouring of volunteer, the rest of
community that has really bandied together. And everybody has really
been trying to do their part of be sure everybody is fed, warm and
feeling okay for the time being.”–Lisa Klig of Council of Jewish Emigre
Community Organizations (COJECO)
