Question re Malachim/Angels Dear Rav Gordon,

In your Shavuot shir (re Ezekial), you spoke about the different "classes" of Angels, eg. Hayot HaKodesh, Ophanim, Seraphim. My belated question:

Why (do we believe) did Hashem create different kinds/classes of angels? Some closer to us (Rash Gadol), others higher (Seraphim), still others Ophanim, etc? Why did H" (do we believe) need even one class of Angels to praise Him?

I love your teaching,

Thanks in advance for your reply.
