Over 2100, during the Hebrew month of Kislev, a tiny group of Jewish soldiers fought a Goliath in the form of the Greek army. Miraculously, they prevailed. Today, during the Hebrew month of Shevat, a month known primarily for figs and carob, another miracle has happened. A tiny Jewish website (without naming names, let's say it rhymes with "Bewlarious") has taken on the cybertitans YouTube and World Poker Tour...and we have prevailed.

But wait. Just as our forefathers did in the days of yore, Jewlarious didn't give up. We decided to fight! We launched a YouTube petition, and with the help of three of our loyal Jewlarious readers who signed up (thanks Mom, Dad, and "Pepe") YouTube was forced to retract their vicious decision. Below is their humiliating letter of defeat that they sent to us.

Sometimes, miracles do come true.
Does the Almighty always answer our prayers? Yes. Is the answer sometimes "no"? Yes. But today, this week, this month, in this holy month of Shevat, God has said "yes" to your prayers – Mom, Dad, and Pepe. Yes, sometimes, miracles do come true.
So, today, with all that is going wrong in the world, it is nice to know that at least something is going right. Savor this victory, won't you? Sit back, relax, eat some figs, and watch a video about Chanukah in February.
