Shlomo received two degrees from MIT, in Humanities and in Electrical Engineering and worked as an engineer in Boston before moving back to Kansas City to start a business with his father. While in KC, Shlomo taught classes at local Sunday schools on Judaism and Ecology and Jewish meditation. He and his wife, Rina Shoshana also taught Macrobiotic and whole-foods cooking classes. When their oldest son reached 2nd grade, the Viles moved to Chicago so he could attend the Lubavitch Cheder. In 2010, the Viles made aliyah to Israel with their four children. They have established their home in Bat Ayin in Israel's Judean Hills.
