A Query
Rabbi Jacobson you seemed to say that the reason people don't need more of a secular education is becasue in our times there is imbalance between the soul doctors (shluchim) and the yidden who are not a classical shluchim. Are you therefore implying that everyone or almost every in our community should be shluchim in order to right that balance?
