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."
