comment Forgiveness vs. Justice?
This is great information, thanks so much. In my situation, realistically, the family "perp" is unlikely to acknowledge any wrongdoing, though he's likely acted criminally against me and his other fellow family. I think my anger and sadness are manageable right now. I don't want him to "get away with it," and would love to see court justice, get an apology, and I would certainly grant forgiveness. Some think that courts will escalate things. Either way, I'm primarily concerned with healing myself and my immediate family over the betrayal, and wondered what Jewish approaches there were to this.

comment Why are angelic icons not prominent in Judaism?
I think another problem is that I'm looking for anecdotes about people not very well educated about Judaism and if this problem exists outside my family asking the community to speculate why this is the case. I would delete this question if requested.

comment Why are angelic icons not prominent in Judaism?
Thanks for the info about angels and Judaism, but I was wondering whether or not the mistaken belief that Jews don't believe in them is widespread.

@msh210, thanks for asking for clarification. Apparently I hadn't fully thought through my question before posting it! I edited the question a bit to better reflect my original intention, but realized some of this looks like speculative discussion probably more appropriate for the wiki. Tech questions are much easier to write :)
