עֵ֫זֶר כְּנֶגְדּוֹ (Ezer Kenegdo), Genesis 2:18, and R. David Freedman: “A Power Equal to Him”?

This is the second video in a series on the meaning of the term עֵ֫זֶר כְּנֶגְדּוֹ
(Ezer Kenegdo) in Genesis 2:18. This video deals with the suggestion made by R. David Freedman that the term עֵ֫זֶר כְּנֶגְדּוֹ (Ezer Kenegdo) doesn’t mean “a helper that corresponds to him” but “a power equal to him”. While Freedman focuses on both parts of the term עֵ֫זֶר כְּנֶגְדּוֹ, the focus here will be on the meaning of the term עֵ֫זֶר (ezer). Enjoy!
