Aggada (The way we tell our stories):
Text Study on Bereshit Rabba 8:1
God created the adam in His own image; in the image of God He created him – male and female [God] created them. — Genesis 1:27
Said Rabbi Jeremiah ben Elazar: “When the Holy One, blessed be the One, created the first adam, [God] created him [an] “androgynos.” As there it is written: ‘When God created the adam, He made him in the likeness of God; male and female [God] created them.’
— Genesis 5:2
Said Rabbi Shmuel Bar Nachman: “At the time that the Holy One, blessed be the One, created the first adam, He created him double-faced and [then] split him, and made for him two backs – a back here and a back there.” They asked him: “But isn’t it written: ‘and He took one of his ribs [tzelah]’?” He said to them: “[This actually means] one of his sides...as we understand it, ‘and one of the sides [tzelah] of the tabernacle.’”— Exodus 26:20
Rabbi Tanchuma in the name of Rabbi Benayah and Rabbi Berechya in the name of Rabbi Elazar said: “At the time that the Holy One, blessed be the One, created the first adam, [He] created him as a golem [an unformed physical substance]; and it was extended from one end of the world to its other end, as there it is written: “My golem Your eyes have seen...” (Psalm 139:16) — Midrash Rabbah 8
Keep in mind—in Judaism, only Jews are adam (man):
Note Rabbi Shimon ben Yohai’s ruling: “…only ‘you,’ the members of the Jewish people, are called men, but non-Jews are not called men.”

When Judaism’s evils are exposed, the Jews will invariably claim,
“…but nobody believes that any more.” That denial is always a lie.
Transgender Bathrooms Are a Human Rights Struggle - and a Jewish Imperative
Jews frequently layer lies upon lies. An example from the article: “We learn in Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5 that whoever saves a life, saves an entire world, but also that whoever destroys a life, destroys an entire world. We, as Jews, have an obligation to save lives and save worlds.”
Except that the Mishnah of the Talmud says no such thing. The Talmud states only the value of Jewish lives:
