Question: Who Are the Archangels on the Kabbalah Tree of Life?

The Tree of Life in the mystical faith called Kabbalah (sometimes spelled "Qabala") illustrates how God, the Creator, expresses his creative energy throughout the universe, through angels and on to human beings. Each of the tree's branches (called "sephirot") symbolize a particular type of creative force that a different archangel oversees. By focusing on the different energies one by one, people can develop a closer spiritual union with God, believers say.

Here are which archangels serve on the Tree of Life, and which type of creative energy that archangel specializes in expressing:

Answer:
      Kether (the Crown): Archangel Metatron
      Chokmah (wisdom): Archangel Raziel
      Binah (understanding): Archangel Tzaphkiel
      Chesed (mercy): Archangel Zadkiel
      Geburah (strength): Archangel Chamuel
      Tiphareth (beauty): Archangels Michael and Raphael (working together)
      Netzach (eternity): Archangel Haniel
      Hod (glory): Archangels Michael and Raphael (working together)
      Yesod (the foundation): Archangel Gabriel
      Malkuth (the kingdom): Archangel Sandalphon
