is a Cherub (Kerub in Hebrew) themed page, focusing on the symbol of
the second choir of angels, also known as cherubim. The
sixth-century Christian theologian Dionysius the Areopagite wrote that
the "cherubim are some
of the most powerful and awe-inspiring of all angels, standing below
only the seraphim in direct closeness to God; they thus are second only
to their seraphic brethren in the degree to which they emanate the love
of God and possess knowledge and wisdom. Their illuminative knowledge
and wisdom are thus so great as to be utterly incomprehensible to the
mortal mind, blinding the blessed human who has the honor of actually
beholding them in this world." Classic artists
over the centuries have dipicted the cherubum as babies with wings
because the masters wished to equate the innocence of the angels with
the innocence of newborn children.

cherub (Heb. kruvim, lat. cherub[us], pl cherubi[m]) is mentioned
several times in the Torah, Old Testament and in the Book of Revelation
(a New Testament text), as well as in Paradise Lost, Ezekiel and
Isaiah. The correct plural can be written as cherubim or
Judaism includes belief in the existence of angels, including Cherubim
within the Jewish angelic hierarchy, as does Conservative Judaism,
although some factions in the latter interpret certain liturgical
references to Cherubim more figuratively. In accordance with
the Talmud, when the Birkat HaMazon (Grace after Meals) is
recited by at least ten thousand seated at one meal, the special
blessing "Blessed is
Ha-Shem our God, the God of Israel, who dwells between the Cherubim"
is traditionally added to the regular liturgy.
