    We had atwo-person Jewish Heritage our with Julieta. Within a short time, we felt that she was a friend and not just a guide. She was very flexible in changing around what had been originally planned to include other sites that we wanted to see. Because of that, we were able to accomplish all of our goals for that day--Holocaust Memorial, three synagogues, Museum of Tolerance. I'm a historian, and already knew most of the history of Moscow and Russian Jewry, yet this tour added much to my knowledge of this area.
