Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Rimanov (1745–1815) was a Hasidic Rebbe and author. Born in Neustadt, he was introduced to Hasidut at the age of 11 when he met Dovber of Mezeritch. He was taught by Elimelech of Lizhensk and Shmelke of Nikolsburg, and was the teacher of Naftali of Ropshitz and Rabbi Tzvi Elimelech of Dinov.

As one of the three principal disciples of Elimelech of Lizhensk, he was an important Hasidic leader in Poland. He is known for his asceticism and mystical support for Napoleon, whose wars he identified with the battles of Gog and Magog, associated with the advent of the Messianic Age.

Although based in Rimanov, Rabbi Menachem Mendel's court, which attracted many scholars, had previously been in Fristik. His writings and sermons were posthumously published, notably Sifrei haRahak Rabbi Menachem Mendel me-Rymanów. Others included the works Divrei Menachem, Menachem Tzion, and Be'erot HaMayin.
