Blending interactive storytelling and seamless architectural design, Potion created the Museum at Eldridge Street's Limud Tables to educate visitors about the museum's important history, location, and architecture while honoring the institution's cultural role as the Eldridge Street Synagogue.

Taking their name from the Yiddish word for learning, the two Limud Tables educate visitors about the Synagogue and the historical community of the Lower East Side. Meticulously constructed three-dimensional models recreate important neighborhood sites from the turn of the century, offering visitors stories of Jewish immigrant life at these historic sites. In addition to stories, each table also contains interactive activities, such as a game that engages children in the reconstruction of the synagogue's stained glass window.

Each interactive consists of two pieces: a custom-designed solid wood table that serves as the point of interaction, and a large format LCD display upon which the stories are presented. Potion designed the interactive tables with careful attention to their environment, allowing them to be easily turned off and to blend into the background during services.

The Limud Tables received the Gold Muse Award from the American Association of Museums for Best Interactive Experience of 2008.
