JEHIEL MICHAEL BEN ELIEZER:

Rabbi at Nemirov, Russia; murdered May, 1648. When the hordes of Chmielnicki, taking Nemirov, began the work of pillage and massacre, a Cossack concealed Jehiel, hoping that the latter would show him where the Jews had hidden their wealth. A shoemaker, however, discovered Jehiel and his mother, dragged them to the cemetery, and murdered them. Jehiel was the author of a work entitled "Shibre Luḥot," containing homilies on several Sabbatic sections and the various Biblical readings given in the Talmud. The work was published posthumously at Lublin in 1680.
