by Rabbi Geoffrey W. Dennis
The cousin of the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. 32), a prophet in his own right and a master of esoteric powers. He could adjure angels. During the siege of Jerusalem he summons armies of them to fight the Babylonians. Since this contravened God's will, God changed the angelic names. In response Chanameel summoned the "Sar Olam," the "Prince of the Universe" to lift Jerusalem into heaven, where it waits to be brought down with the coming of the Messiah (Eicah Zuta, Lam. R. 2).
