1. This isn't a question on the vort but what does it mean that Adam is Yetzur Kapav of Hashem?
2. Were other creatures made from a mold or just Adam and what is the significance of being created this way if only Adam was?

1. The translation is "formed by His hands" כביכול. It means whereas everyone else in the world had parents, Adam had no parents and was formed totally by Hashem.

2. There was no mold.

So how is the creation of man any different than how Hashem created the animals?

There's the neshoma. I also have heard that the creation of man was done more directly, by His "hand", and there was some sort of difference in the type of dirt used. I dont know what that means though.

I'll give you a bit of a tease of the shiur every Shabbos afternoon by Rabbi Shapiro, (about brias haolam)

 

man is a combination of all creation....

 

maybe the rabbi can elaborate on it more...
