Pinchas Farber - Character Profile
Updated: Apr 11, 2021
Born in 1876, Pinchas is Joel's father. A peddler by trade, Pinchas had grown up in Lemberg, Galicia (then a part of Austria-Hungary, now in Ukraine), before immigrating to New York City's Lower East Side.
He had worked as a hat-maker (as had his father and grandfather before him) in Lemberg.
A laid-back man, Pinchas tries to avoid confrontation as much as possible. He is rather passive and would prefer not to get involved in politics or anything "too extreme."
He met his wife, Rachel, back in Warsaw. In her youth, she was a striking beauty, though proud and distant.
Pinchas is 172 cm tall.
