"...and at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your people...and at that time your people shall be delivered." – Daniel 12:1

Michael is an archangel in Jewish teachings. In Hebrew, Michael means "who is like God", which is traditionally interpreted as a rhetorical question: "Who is like God?" (which expects an answer in the negative) to imply that no one is like God. In this way, Michael is reinterpreted as a symbol of humility before God.
In the Hebrew Bible Michael is mentioned three times in the Book of Daniel, once as a "great prince who stands up for the children of your people" (this is the quote used here). The idea that Michael was the advocate of the Jews became so prevalent that in spite of the rabbinical prohibition against appealing to angels as intermediaries between God and his people, Michael came to occupy a certain place in the Jewish liturgy.
