Every Jew a Star

One person came to Rabbi Yishmael son of Rabbi Yose and said to him I dreamed that I swallowed a star.  He said to him may your spirit expire you killed  a Jew because it states in the verse “a star went forth from Yacov” (Talmud Yerushalmi Maaser Sheini 4:6)
חד בר נש אתא לגבי רבי ישמעאל בי רבי יוסי א”ל חמית בחלמאי בלע חד כוכב.  א”ל תיפח רוחיה דההוא גברא יהודאי קטל דכתיב דרך כוכב מיעקב.
