Among the treasures the archive published are videos from Israel's first years, from the time of the British Mandate into the late sixties.

The Bezalel Academy stands at the center of the cultural discourse associated with the country's artistic activity and plays a decisive role in the shaping of Israel's cultural identity. The Bezalel Catalog was established for the purpose of documenting and preserving the visual history of the Bezalel Academy and the creative output of Academy graduates, and creating a historic archive of the institution that would contain works created by the students during the various stages of their studies, to enable documentation and provide access to current activities at Bezalel. Every year, the Academy's extensive database is further enriched by current records of hundreds of new works from all of the departments at Bezalel: Architecture, Industrial Design, Ceramic & Glass Design, Jewelry & Fashion Design, Photography, Fine Arts, Screen-Based Arts, Visual Communication as well as from the higher degree programs in fine arts, industrial design and urban design.

A family survey, ethnographic study, and quasi-experimental study investigated Shalom Sesame's potential to enhance understanding of Jewish culture and identity among preschool families. Preschoolers demonstrated significant learning, recognizing that people who looked different could be Jewish, and in knowledge about Hebrew words, Jewish holidays, and things they would see in Israel. Learning also extended beyond the screen, via spontaneous family discussions/activities, and an increased desire to celebrate holidays or visit Israel. The videos held particular value for interfaith families and those outside established Jewish communities. Parents valued Shalom Sesame for helping children connect to the broader Jewish community, deepening their own connection, and educating non-Jewish relatives and friends.
