The Berdichev Revival

The Berdichev Revival: "This web-site displays an old dream, presently realized, representing a humble homage mainly dedicated to my beloved father, David Spunberg (1901-1982), born in Berdichev, as well as to all our Jewish brothers, ruthlessly assassinated during the Nazi invasion of the town in 1941."

Hardening WordPress « WordPress Codex: "Vulnerabilities on Your Computer
Make sure the computers you use are free of spyware, malware, and virus infections. No amount of security in WordPress or on your web server will make the slightest difference if there is a keylogger on your computer.

Always keep your operating system and the software on it, especially your web browser, up to date to protect you from security vulnerabilities."

WordPress › Support » How to make wordpress installation secure from hackers ?: "- keep your installation up to date
- don't use themes or plugins that are not hosted on wordpress.com/extend
Payed closed source themes don't always guarantee security.
- keep your server secure

Your system is as strong as it's weakest link. WordPress won't improve an insecure server, so be careful what else you use on the same box."

Bad Neighborhood - Login LockDown WordPress Security Plugin

Bad Neighborhood - Login LockDown WordPress Security Plugin: "ogin LockDown records the IP address and timestamp of every failed WordPress login attempt. If more than a certain number of attempts are detected within a short period of time from the same IP range, then the login function is disabled for all requests from that range. This helps to prevent brute force password discovery. Currently the plugin defaults to a 1 hour lock out of an IP block after 3 failed login attempts within 5 minutes. This can be modified via the Options panel. Admisitrators can release locked out IP ranges manually from the panel."

10 Steps to Securing Your WordPress Installation - Tuts+ Code Article

10 Steps to Securing Your WordPress Installation - Tuts+ Code Article: "#6 Change File Permissions

It is very important that you have the proper file permissions to ensure your site's security. I recommend that you restrict your file permissions down to the bare, CHMOD value of 744 which essentially makes it read-only to everyone except you.

Just open your FTP program and right click the folder or file and click on "File Permissions". If it is 777, you are very lucky that you haven't already been hacked. You should change the CHMOD value to 744, only giving the "owner" full access."

Giving WordPress Its Own Directory « WordPress Codex

Giving WordPress Its Own Directory « WordPress Codex: "Click Save Changes. (Do not worry about the error message and do not try to see your blog at this point! You will probably get a message about file not found.)
Move your WordPress core files to the new location (WordPress address).
Copy (NOT MOVE!) the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of your site (Blog address). The .htaccess file is invisible, so you may have to set your FTP client to show hidden files. If you are not using pretty permalinks, then you may not have a .htaccess file. If you are running WordPress on a Windows (IIS) server and are using pretty permalinks, you'll have a web.config rather than a .htaccess file in your WordPress directory. For the index.php file the instructions remain the same, copy (don't move) the index.php file to your root directory. The web.config file, must be treated differently than the .htaccess file so you must MOVE (DON'T COPY) the web.config file to your root directory.
Open your root directory's index.php file in a text editor"

Giving WordPress Its Own Directory « WordPress Codex

Giving WordPress Its Own Directory « WordPress Codex: "Moving a Root install to its own directory
The process to move WordPress into its own directory is as follows:

Create the new location for the core WordPress files to be stored (we will use /wordpress in our examples). (On linux, use mkdir wordpress from your www directory. You'll probably want to use "chown apache:apache" on the wordpress directory you created.)
Go to the General panel.
In the box for WordPress address (URL): change the address to the new location of your main WordPress core files. Example: http://example.com/wordpress
In the box for Site address (URL): change the address to the root directory's URL. Example: http://example.com
Click Save Changes. (Do not worry about the error message and do not try to see your blog at this point! You will probably get a message about file not found.)
Move your WordPress core files to the new location (WordPress address)."

opportunities

opportunities: "Creating such a virtual museum, i.e. a museum that exists only on the Internet, has its advantages and offers unique opportunities. Such a museum does not require the raising of funds (though contributions are gratefully accepted and greatly appreciated) to erect an actual building, but can be created by a person with the imagination, time, knowledge and the means to do so, not to mention the material to fill such a museum. Such as it is, a virtual (Internet-only) museum can only be filled with that which attracts the senses of sight and sound (at least until an olfactory chip is invented). The Museum of Family History to a great degree is composed of photographs and text and is somewhat interactive"

lb/lasky-michael-ida: "Michael had emigrated from Zambrow, Russia (now Poland) in 1902, leaving his wife Ida (from Warszawa) and young daughter Jean (Sheina) in Europe for a time. Like many, he left his wife and daughter and came to countries like the United States, hoping to find accommodation and work, and perhaps raise the money that would be needed to bring over whatever family he had back in Eastern Europe. Ida and Jean emigrated in 1904."

Moshe Arens in Shdema Speaks: Warsaw Ghetto Events - Jewish World - News - Israel National News

Moshe Arens in Shdema Speaks: Warsaw Ghetto Events - Jewish World - News - Israel National News: "Warsaw Jewry refused to believe it. They thought that as things stood, they were under German occupation, yet it had not happened, there was no mass murder. There were those who believed that perhaps such a murder could occur, but only in a place that was previously under Soviet regime and not here, in Warsaw”, says Arens, and points out that there was some opposition to the very spreading of this information, as it might invoke German wrath."

(99) Yom Tov Glaser

(99) Yom Tov Glaser: "for us all to "accept" someone's essence. The idea being their "essence" is who they truly are. I believe that these days there is a great deal of hatred amongst groups, within communities, and nations. I believe I have heard somewhere that it was "hatred for no reason" that was the cause of the destruction of the 2nd Holy Temple? If one group, community, or nation specifically defines themselves as hating another group, community or nation, then I would think it would be extremely difficult fot the "hated" group, to like the other group. So consider this problem, if group X, exists simply to destroy group Y- (for no particular reason) how can group Y "transcend the natural reciprocal hatred" and not allow themselves simply to hate group X? Setting this up as an equation works"
