How does place/urban vs. suburban settings affect how we will raise our families in the future? How do the ways our grandparents and generations back impact us today? Gabi Weinberg, aka the @startuprabbi, will lead a in-person discussion about the intersection of family and geography through the lens of ancient and modern texts paired with life experience.
Pundits, venture capitalists, and all humanity come from some form of family unit that follows a formulaic tracjectory: parents, children, grandchildren and so on.
The topic of where we live and who we live near has emerged as a topic of discussion and it quickly intersects with questions about family, the family you started from, the family you’ve chosen, and perhaps the family you might one day hope to create. Intention and preparation will supremely enhance the way we enage with these questions.
This conversation will be inspired by Katherine Boyle’s 2021 essay about the opportunity the pandemic provided in family formation. It will take inspiration from David Brooks earlier essay on a similar topic in the Atlantic. And will try to weave in texts from ancient traditions of the Bible and other philosophers to enhance our understanding about where we live, the families we build, and how they relate to one another.
We’ll explore the story of Jacob, the biblical epitome of the grandparent-grandchild bond (he chose to bless his grandsons before he blessed his own children).
No matter your age or stage, if you’re interested in enaging with these questions, you’re invited to this discussion!
