Zack Miller has been participating in Cteen since 2015 and is a self-declared “Cteen Lifer”. After attending Devonshire Elementary and Old Orchard Junior High, Zack returned to a Jewish academic setting for high school, and has made a name for himself at Ida Crown Jewish Academy, where he is currently a senior. Zack lives in Skokie with his parents and his younger brother, Josh, and misses his older brother Max who is a medic in the IDF. Zack’s parents deeply appreciate Zack’s incredible sense of humor and big heart.
When Zack’s not in school, or at a CTeen event, you can find him playing hockey and hanging out with his friends, and wearing interesting and colorful Crocs. Zack values self-discovery as well as Jewish personal growth, and is eager to learn Torah and apply it personally, and he cherishes his relationship with Rabbi Yochanan and Yona Posner. Zack will be attending Mevaseret Yeshiva in Israel next year, and he hopes that his Cteen friends will come visit him there.

Ally Koplow is in 7th grade at Hillel Torah Day School. Ally spends her free time reading, skateboarding, playing the piano, creating metal earth projects and hanging out with her siblings and friends. She was a key player this year on the Hillel Torah Girls basketball team, and she and her teammates worked hard to compete against other small private schools. On weekends she is a group leader at her shul, Skokie Valley Agudath Jacob.
Last year, Ally started her own mini-business, taking care of neighbors’ dogs when they are busy or out of town. She is an animal lover and recently became the proud “mom” of her own adorable lab retriever puppy. Ally is an active participant in Cteen Junior and has also participated in Cteen Better Together. She lives in Skokie with her parents, Jon and Jen Koplow, her older brother, and her two younger siblings.
