Do I have to be Jewish to become a member of JHub?

No. JHub is an inclusive place that cares about values more than what religious group you belong to. Therefore, anyone (Jewish or non-Jewish) who agrees with our core values and is using them to work towards social change is welcome to become a member of JHub.

How much does it cost to rent the space?

JHub is fully funded by Pears Foundation. For this reason, we  use a "pay it forward" system, where members pledge to pay forward the value of their membership to a cause they care about. How much you pay forward (through volunteering, tzedakah or in-kind support for a charity) depends on how much you utilise JHub. We recommend the following:

  •     day of hotdesking - £30 or equivalent  
  •     rental of Studio for an event - £200 or equivalent 
  •     professional development seminar - £75 or equivalent

I don’t ‘work’ in this field can I still be a member?

Of course. JHub is not just for professionals working towards social change. It is also meant for trustees, volunteers, entrepreneurs, social activists, funders and anyone who cares about using Jewish values to promote social change.

How will you check to see I’m paying forward the value of my membership?

An integrated system of cameras and informants. Only kidding, JHub is a community of trust. It attracts the kinds of people who believe in working together to change the world for the better. Therefore, we trust people to self-certify that they are paying forward the value of their membership. We also  invite you to  share how you are paying forward  as it helps inspire others to do the same!

What’s the relationship between Pears Foundation and JHub?

JHub is an operating programme of Pears Foundation. We are fully funded by Pears Foundation . However, JHub operates independently from the foundation. Therefore, while members of JHub and resident organisations benefit indirectly from Pears Foundation, they are not entitled to claim that they have a relationship with, or are supported by, Pears Foundation. Rather, they are part of the JHub community.

How are you funded?

JHub is an operating programme of Pears Foundation and is fully funded in this way. The premises are part of one of the office buildings of the William Pears Group, which has offered the space to the foundation for charitable purposes.

Where is JHub?

JHub is located in Haskell House, which is located at 152 West End Lane. In order to enter JHub, you must walk into the car park as there is no entrance on West End Lane itself. You can use our JHub Directions guide for extra help.

There is no parking available at JHub as all spaces in the car park are allocated. So please park on the surrounding streets, or come by public transport.

When is JHub open?

JHub is normally open on weekdays from 9:00-17:00, although it is closed on Jewish holidays, bank holidays and also during the week between Christmas and New Years Day.

Can I access JHub after hours?

Who owns the JHub building?

JHub is based at Haskell House, which is one of the offices of the William Pears Group. They have graciously offered the ground floor of this building to JHub, and we ask our members to be conscious that we are their guests. For this reason, we ask that JHub visitors not congregate in the foyer or outside the front door. (If you must smoke, then best to do it up on West End Lane, but even better to quit!) Also, we do not have parking spaces for members or visitors, so please use public transport or park on the surrounding streets.

Where can I park when I come to JHub?

JHub is located right next to several public transport links - Jubilee line, Overground, Thameslink. Therefore, we encourage visitors to use public transport to travel to JHub. There is also a bicycle rack for our two-wheel visitors to use. If you must drive, then you will have to find parking on a surrounding street as all of the spaces in the Haskell House car park are allocated to specific cars.

What are Micro Grants for?  

Micro Grants are small amounts of seed-funding designed to help individuals get a project off the ground. You can apply either for funding for a project or else support to attend a conference/training event to give you the necessary skills to develop your project. We require all micro grant recipients to find a way to share their learning with the JHub community, through writing a blog or teaching a session to share what they have learned.

What is intrapreneurship?

JHub promotes social entrepreneurship, but we recognise that entrepreneurs can also exist within established institutions, a phenomenon often called "intrapreneurship." For that reason, we also welcome people who are working with existing structures, but who are looking to make change through creating a new project or idea there. For example, JHub currently hosts a new project sponsored by the JDC (a major American charity). We welcome inquiries from those working in the established community about how they can use some of the principles of entrepreneurship to create a project within their institution.
