Explanation: Bezaleel is a biblical character. He was the smith who made much or all of the first [jewish] temple's golden accessories of worship. These including the six-lighted candelbra, called the menora, which is today incorporated in the emblem of the state of Israel, as it appeared on Titus' arch in Rome.
Hence, the name Bezaleel was adopted for the first art school opened in Israel (in the first decade of the 20th century). The Bezaleel school of art is still considered Israel's most prestigous, though there is no lack of competition nowadays. It is located on Mt. Scopus adjacent to the Hebrew Univerity's campus. The Architecture department, is located in downtown Jerusalem in the school's original building, which sits on Bezaleel street.
Besides Bezaleel street in Jerusalem, there are a few more streets by that name in other Israeli cities.
Bezaleel is generally common in naming things (stores, for example) that are related to jewelry and fine metal work.
