On top of the Kapores, the cover of the Aron, stood two golden Keruvim. The Keruvim depicted the love between Hashem and the Jewish people.
According to the Zohar, one of the Keruvim was in the form of a man and the other was in the form of a woman.
When the Jewish people would visit the Beis Hamikdash for the Festivals, they would open the curtain of the Kodesh Hakodashim and show the Jewish people the Keruvim embracing one another. They would say “see how you are beloved to Hashem, like a woman is beloved to a man”. The love between husband and wife represents passionate desire.
According to the Gemara both Keruvim had the face of a man; one had the face of an adult and the other the face of a young child. This depicts Hashem’s love for the Jewish people using the analogy of a father and his son.
A parent’s love for their child is not based on their qualities and achievements. It is not based on what the child does and how they behave. The love of a parent to their child is an essential love because the child is a part of themselves, because it is their child. This is true for every child, but the younger the child, the more apparent it is. A newborn baby has no achievements to boast and yet we love them deeply.
At the deepest level of our relationship, the experience of the Kodesh Hakodashim, Hashem’s love for every Jew runs deeper than our observance of the Mitzvos. Every Neshama is part of Hashem Above. He loves us because we are part of Him.
