If you have the pages, you have what exists. Translation is probably not necessary, as Professor Deych organized the work in tabular form. You can use an online translator for the position your ancestor held.  What is available from the book that is not in the index is the name of the congregation, the number of members (presumably males at least 13 years old) and, for a small minority of the people listed, when they assumed the office and their annual compensation.
    Professor Deych indicated that for some listings there is additional information available in the archives in St. Petersburg, but did not mention what that additional information might be.
