We're looking forward to our river boat exploring Russia.  Is anyone interested in looking for Jewish sites, synagogues, etc?

We are going June 2 2011, We too would like to do Jewish section tour. I believe it is one of GCT optionals, but they also have another optional tour given at same time. Hope that doesn't mean Jewish tour will not be offered due to lack of interest. If you find anything about doing on our own, all info would be appreciated. Thanks Joel & Rona

I was in Russia in August.  They had eliminated the Star City optional tour and had added a tour of Jewish sites.  One to a synagogue built as a memorial, and not used much as a synagogue.  The other was a synagogue re-opened.  Both had commentary.
