"High Rabbi" in Poland, Ger Rabbi #poland #rabbinic #warsaw

My grandfather, Hirsch Wolf Ingberg, moved from Warsaw to Minden Germany in 1913.  My mother was born in 1918.  She recalled her father making annual trips to Poland to visit what she referred to as the"High Rabbi".  I believe this may have been the Ger Rabbi.  Mother thought her Father saw him in Krakow.

Researching this, I find the following regarding the Ger Rabbi for this time period:

Rebbe Avraham Mordechai Alter (December 25, 1866 – June 3, 1948), also known as the Imrei Emes. Son of Rabbi Leib Alter. Gerrer Rebbe from 1905 to 1948.

I know very little about my grandfather so I am very interested in learning who this "High Rabbi" was and what would be the reason for the annual visit.

Where would this have taken place?  Am I right in assuming the "High Rabbi" was the Ger Rabbi?  How might I learn more about my family's connection to this sect?

Any help/suggestions will be most appreciated.

Thank you.
