An Arel, Ar'el, or Er'el (Heb. אֶרְאֵל, pl. אֶרְאֵלִים Erelim — "hero", "valiant one") refers to a rank of angels in Jewish Kabbalah and Christianity. The name is seen to mean "the valiant/courageous". They are generally seen as the third highest rank of divine beings/angels below God.

A specific Arel, or the erelim, are also referenced in other modern mysticism, in various ways, like the various Kabbalistic traditions, and elsewhere.[citation needed]

There may be an etymological relationship between the Arelim and the angel Ariel.[citation needed]

The Erelim angelhood is also believed to be the agents of earthly justice.[citation needed]
