Yeb. 63a on the phrase ‫זכר ונקבה בראם‬ (Gen 5:2). Noort, “The Creation,” 8–9. We read in Gen. Rab. parsha 8:1 Rabbi Jeremiah’s statement that when God created the first man, He created him an androgyny, that being the meaning of the phrase ‫“ זכר ונקבה ברא אתם‬male and female he created them” (Gen 1:27); Rabbi Samuel expanded on this, explaining the mechanism: God created Adam the First with two faces, and then sawed him, and made of him two backs, one to one side and one to the other side, and cut them in two parts (literally) shoulders, one to one side and the other to another side.

Neof. ”49 The use of ‫ בנה‬for the woman’s creation alone induced the rabbis, the authors of ancient Targumim, traditional commentators, and modern scholars to seek a motive for this exception.
