Rimenov (Yiddish: רימאנאוו[rɨˈmanuf]) is the name of a Hasidic rabbinical dynasty within Orthodox Judaism. The dynasty originated in Rymanów in Poland's Subcarpathian Voivodeship.

The first Rebbe of Rimenov was Grand Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Rimanov (1745–1815), author of Sifrei haRahak Rabbi Menachem Mendel me-Rymanów, Divrei Menachem, Menachem Tzion[1] and Toras Menachem.

His disciple and successor was Rav Tzvi Hersh Hakohen of Rimanov (1778-1846), called Reb Tzvi Hersh Meshares, author of Be'eros Hamayim.
