If Paul Revere were to be alive today and happened to be working in JHub (maybe running an organisation that helps people get their message out there quickly) he would be heard yelling;
“The bookcase is coming! The bookcase is coming!”
That is because today are taking delivery of our new JHub bookcase. As I write this I am waiting for it to arrive and am very excited for that to happen (I say looking out of the window hoping for a van to arrive…….nothing yet).
The reason behind the new and larger book case comes after many, many discussions as to what JHub is. We are looking to conceptually expand.
We are more than just an incubator for our resident organisations. JHub should be a resource both for them (they are very very important to us) and the wider Jewish social action community. A great place for us to start that is quite quick is by expanding and developing the books and resources we hold.
After sorting through all the books that JHub currently own we came up with a number of categories including:
- How to…
- Human rights
- Politics and society
- Biographies and fiction
- Religion and beliefs
- and many more

The new book case has now arrived and the existing books have been added to it. I think it looks great but we still need to add lots more interesting and important books. So if you have any suggestions please leave me a comment with the title and why it should make the JHub book shelves.
