This notion of multiplicity of meaning is the core inspiration of the Jewish Artists’ Laboratory of the Midwest. The lab is a network of professional Jewish artists in six cities in the Midwest – Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Chicago, and Cleveland – now in its sixth year. In each city, a group meets twice monthly to study a theme related to Jewish life, and to create works of art for an annual exhibit/showcase based on their study. The artists include painters, printmakers, sculptors, fabric artists, musicians, poets, playwrights, choreographers, mixed media artists, photographers, and more.

However with the development of more efficient communication devices such as telephones, the internet and mobile phones, the popularity of Shana Tova cards has declined.The National Library of Israel collects Jewish memories and traditions and has also accumulated a large collection of Shana Tova cards that document the life of the Jewish people in the Diaspora and in Israel. These postcards contain fascinating photographs and illustrations, but more than that, they contain secrets just waiting to be discovered.

Voices & Visions is about art, about powerful messages, about combining them into posters, about starting conversations, about continuing the Jewish journey. In late 2012 Voices & Visions released its debut Masters Series. A collection of 18 images, the series pairs leading figures of contemporary art and design with powerful quotes from Jewish thinkers across the ages. Originally offered as a limited release, the Masters Series took off and is now being used by Jewish organizations around the world. Organizations have used the images to beautify their spaces, spark conversations, contribute to their curricula, and create new programming. The series is offered as a gift to organizations interested in using the images in their community space.

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.
