Rav Pinchas Menachem Alter (1926-1996), known as the Pnei Menachem of Ger, was born in prewar Poland, escaped the crucible of the holocaust as a teenager and grew up in Eretz Yisroel.

The Pnei Menachem was the seventh Rebbe of the Hasidic dynasty of Ger, a position he held from 1992 until his death in 1996.

Rav Pinchas Menachem succeeded his half-brother, Rabbi Simcha Bunim Alter, to become Rebbe in 1992.

Rav Pinchas Menachem died in 1996 after less than four years at the helm of the Ger dynasty. He had previously been the Rosh Yeshiva of the Sfas Emes Yeshiva in Yerushalayim and was known for his depth of knowledge in Torah.

His father – the Imrei Emes was able to attend the wedding of his beloved “ben zekunim”, but was niftar shortly thereafter.
Under the leadership of his eldest brother the Beis Yisroel – he grew to become the Torah giant he was eventually known as, although he tried to hide it for as long as possible.
A warm and accessible leader, he was  incredibly modest – when his older brother the Lev Simcha suggested that he take over as Rebbe of Ger after the passing of the Beis Yisroel (the Lev Simcha was himself already almost 70 years old at the time), the Pnei Menachem refused and stated emphatically that he already had a Rebbe – the Lev Simcha.
His “bitul” to his Rebbe was legendary – he once stated that “prior to the holocaust there were hundreds of grandsons of the Sfas Emes, but now there are only two… one is the greatest Yid in the world and the other is the smallest…”
He was buried beside his father, the Imrei Emes, in the courtyard of the Sfas Emes Yeshiva.
This unique Jewish art is the perfect gift for a special occasion; a wedding, anniversary or father’s day.
This is a special modern Jewish artwork that will always be cherished and infuse value into its surroundings.
The Jewish portrait’s neutral majestic materials will integrate easily into every space and elevate the aesthetics around it.
