(or yiddish kup, with cup or kup meaning head) Jewish wits, competence, acumen, etc. The opposite of the pejorative "goyische kup," with goyische meaning non-Jewish.
They defeated larger, more powerful armies, and created a technologically sophisticated, exuberantly democratic state.

How did they succeed? Perhaps it was the hand of God. Perhaps it was Yiddish kup (yiddish cup). Or perhaps it was what Golda Meir described as the secret weapon of Israeli survival: ein briera, they had no choice.

(Not quite sure what pretense this goes under) A popular phrase used by jackasses in half-assed fake Executive E-mails to de-fame or mock honest people who fight for what's right. The 'Yiddish Cup' insult often goes hand-in-hand with using such popular internet slang as, "LOL", "BTW", and "Pimply-faced maladjusted Preteens", several phrases which often appear in Official Memo's from executives, but only when issuing a stern Cease and Desist order. '1337 speak' is like a second language to most 40-something Executive VP's!

To Note: 'Yiddish Cup' is a licensed property of Ebaums World Inc.; if it were an image, it would have been watermarked already.

A vague, indecipherable insult against Max Goldberg of YTMND.com by Neil Bauman of Ebaumsworld.com Possibly a misspelling of cap, in reference to the skullcaps worn by some members of the Jewish faith. This would make the phrase an anti-semitic ethnic slur

The term Yiddish Cup is a misspelled form of Kiddush Cup, a ceremonial Jewish goblet used in rites of passage. Losing possession of it is typically an analogy for losing control of a situation.
