Rabbi of Mayence and afterward of Worms; died before 1426. Runkel was a cabalist, as is shown by his work "Ḥatan Damim" (Prague, 1605), which contains a cabalistic commentary on the Pentateuch according to gemaṭria and noṭariḳon, besides collectanea of ritual laws for circumcision, wedding ceremonies, etc. Runkel did not finish the commentary, which was completed by Isaac ha-Kohen, son-in-law of R. Liwa of Prague.
