Yom Kippur: We Are Angels Print E-mail

Yom KippurIt does not seem to be that difficult to become an angel.  One moment we are people and then magically, as Yom Kippur begins, we achieve the status of angels. Our new status has a Halachic reality; we, humans, do not recite “Baruch shem kivod malchuto l’olam va’ed,” “ Blessed is the Name of His glorious kingdom for all eternity,” aloud. The verse is not part of the Shema in the Torah. It is a phrase that Moses learned from the angels when he spent time in heaven receiving the Torah. Only angels may recite the phrase aloud, which is exactly what we do on Yom Kippur. How does it happen? What is the trigger? When does the transformation take effect?
