Jews who observe Passover can’t eat any sort of leavened foods during the eight-day festival. On April 22, the third day of the holiday, the Condé Nast cafeteria dedicated its “international station” to a Passover lunch. (The week’s other international options included “southern” and “vegetarian.”) There were traditional Jewish dishes like brisket, baked chicken, and potato kugel—and a big bowl of very leavened challah. “Everyone seemed pretty amused by the challah,” commented one staffer. “I ate a piece, because I’m a horrible Jew.” Atoned Condé Nast spokeswoman Maurie Perl: “But there was also a huge bowl of matzo.”
