We'll worry about the bill later

Weird column by Ismar Schorsch in today's Jerusalem Post, in which he recommends that the community provide a free Jewish education to every Jewish kid. Not weird, of course, in itself, but in that he never addresses the one really pertinent question -- how exactly does he plan to pay for this??? (His rather vague comment at the end, "American Jews have at their disposal the wealth to affect the wrenching shift in priorities called for," is hardly sufficient). How did this get past his editors? And is this surprisingly woolly thinking a sign that perhaps he chose the right moment to retire?
