Hakham (or chakam(i), haham(i), hacham(i); Hebrew: חָכָם ḥaḵam, "wise") is a term in Judaism, meaning a wise or skillful man; it often refers to someone who is a great Torah scholar. It can also refer to any cultured and learned person: "He who says a wise thing is called a hakham, even if he be not a Jew." Hence in Talmudic-Midrashic literature, wise gentiles are commonly called hakme ummot ha-'olam ("wise men of the nations of the world"). In Sephardic usage, Hakham is a synonym for "rabbi".
