Fingerprint Access
The Kollel has upgraded its fingerprint-access system which is highly accurate and will save you time and aggravation.
If you use a FOB to enter the building, it should already work. Please let us know if that is not the case.
 If you use a fingerprint or would like to start using one, you will need to register your fingerprint in the new system. The process takes no more than 2 minutes.
 To make an appointment to be fingerprinted, please contact Rabbi Zeffren at As always, questions and comments are welcome.
Otzar Hachochma Digital Library
Thanks to a generous donor, the Kollel offers access to the Otzar Hachochma Digital Library.
Otzar HaHochma is the world's largest digital library, containing more than 100,000 Judaic books, scanned page after page in their original format with G-d willing, 5,000 new titles added annually. The Otzar HaHochma library encompasses all realms of Judaism from ancient times to the modern period. The highlight of Otzar HaHochma's software is its sophisticated search engine, based on Optical Character.
