Many people have filters that block YouTube/FB. I'm assuming that's the reason that Zoom is being used.
This.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Our shul was also hacked by a few people showing Nazi content and worse than that too. First the host changed settings to block chatting and screen sharing.

When the hackers saw that, they just joined and we were able to to see their selfie video.

At this point, we are too fed up and are mostly using Zoom via call in telephone.

The damage that live zoom brings is far greater than the benefit. Period.

I also heard some Zoom schools with young children were hacked and shown inappropriate...

That's because they were created for different functions.

Does a waiting room where the host has to approve the participants help?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Another option could be to only enable video for the host
