Happy Mothers Day to mothers everywhere…especially to Moms who are learning from their children how to use Zoom 🙂

Via Times of Israel.

Zoom. It’s one of the technological tools that’s helping many people muscle through the social distancing lifestyle created by the coronavirus….

Luckily, Yehudit Gruber Suliman, 59, a Jerusalem educator and lecturer, had her son, Yonatan Gruber, 31, to help her figure out how to Zoom….

Gruber, a comic, MC and member of Shlofta, an Israeli comic ensemble, was at home with his wife in Jaffa, recently returned from their South African honeymoon. With all his gigs canceled due to the pandemic, he was feeling a little down….

Gruber, the third of his mother’s five sons, spent more than an hour with his mother on the phone. It was a painstaking, repetitive, frustrating process.

“We finished, and my wife said, ‘Wow, you have so much patience, way to go!’” said Gruber.

Adult son teaching usually savvy mother how to use Zoom? Relatable, for sure. More than that, it was hilarious….

The video went viral, “more than anything I ever dreamed of,” said Gruber.

He’s been interviewed by several Israeli news outlets, and the clip has been sent around hundreds of WhatsApp groups and Facebook threads….

Now it’s bringing in customers for the online improv workshops he offers in English and Hebrew to individuals, families and organizations, as well as multiple requests for him to teach people how to use Zoom….

    Haha! That’s cute! Yeah, I don’t think I could teach my mom that, especially not being with her in-person to take her through it. Then again, I especially couldn’t show anyone else because I have only ever JOINED a Zoom meeting; never set one up myself!
