Evite’s Day of Atonement
Evite, an operator of a free Web-based event planning and invitation service, and a unit of InterActiveCorp, sent the following e-mail message on Friday to recipients of its monthly newsletter:
Yesterday we mailed a newsletter to our subscribers with incorrect dates for three important holidays. Please accept our sincerest apologies for these errors and note the following corrections:
Labor Day, September 1st
Rosh Hashana, September 27th
Yom Kippur, October 6th
In addition, we also wish to apologize for having listed Yom Kippur as one of our “Reasons To Party.” We understand and respect that Yom Kippur is a Day of Atonement, a day to be taken seriously to reflect and fast, and as such, one of the most important Jewish holidays in the year.
Again we deeply apologize for the error and thank you for allowing us to make this correction.
The Evite Team
