Bnei Brak resident Shlomo Goldberg is known as something of a star among his colleagues at Sela Group, the IT company where he works as a software consultant and instructor. Goldberg, whose hi-tech know-how has earned him the nickname Rabbi.Net, recently won a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award – an accolade conferred on outstanding technological community leaders.

It’s not just Goldberg’s software skills that make him stand out from his peers, though. As a haredi man, he doesn’t have a degree in computer science, nor did he study technology at school or in the army.
