Excerpt from Henry Ward Beecher and the Jews: In Commemoration of the Centenary of His Birth (June 24th, 1913)

It is recorded of Rabbi Jehiel, of Paris, the great Talmudist, who flourished in the middle of the thirteenth century, that he was also an accomplished Cabbalist, who, in the secrecy of his chamber, was addicted to the practice of the black art. His fame soon spread abroad among the masses. Indeed, it was rumored that in his underground cell, where he spent most of his days, engrossed in ardent study, there burned a magical lamp, which shed its light from Sabbath to Sabbath, without aid of oil or fuel. Curious crowds gathered in front of his home, anxious to see this marvel, but the Rabbi had drawn a circle about his den and had planted an iron nail in the midst of it, and when any one ventured nigh to disturb his meditations, he struck the nail with a heavy hammer, whereupon the intruder would become rooted to the spot, as long as Jehiel wished. None had ever beheld the wonderful lamp that shone without being kindled, in his sanctuary.

At last, the report of the Rabbi's wizardry reached the ears of the King. Determined to see this miracle for himself, he set out with a large retinue, and was soon knocking at Jehiel's gate.
