Is this a typo and the word is אויפמערקזאם, or are there two different words with different meanings?

Thanks. It is spelled correctly elsewhere in the video, hence my question if it was purposeful.

Judging someone favorably (where a doubt can be present).

Literally: tip the (judgment) scale to the favorable side.

The whole phrase is "Dan L'kaf zchus". The word Dan there is not referring to the founder of this site, but to the word "judge". "Judge someone favorably" in plain English.

Pronounced more like "done".
