In Judaism, a rabbi /ˈræb/ is a teacher of Torah. This title derives from the Hebrew word רַבִּיrabi [ˈʁäbi], meaning "My Master" ">[ʁäbäˈnim]), which is the way a student would address a master of Torah. The word "master" רבrav [ˈʁäv] literally means "great one".

In Judaism, a rabbi /ˈræb/ is a teacher of Torah. This title derives from the Hebrew word רַבִּיrabi [ˈʁäbi], meaning "My Master" (irregular plural רבניםrabanim [ʁäbäˈnim]), which is the way a student would address a master of Torah. The word "master" רבrav [ˈʁäv] literally means "great one".

The basic form of the rabbi developed in the Pharisaic and Talmudic era, when learned teachers assembled to codify Judaism's written and oral laws. The first sage for whom the Mishnah uses the title of rabbi was Yohanan ben Zakkai, active in the early to mid first century CE. In more recent centuries, the duties of the rabbi became increasingly influenced by the duties of the Protestant Christian minister, hence the title "pulpit rabbis", and in 19th-century Germany and the United States rabbinic activities including sermons, pastoral counseling, and representing the community to the outside, all increased in importance.

Within the various Jewish denominations there are different requirements for rabbinic ordination, and differences in opinion regarding who is to be recognized as a rabbi. For example, Orthodox Judaism does not ordain women as rabbis, but other movements have chosen to do so for halakhic reasons (Conservative Judaism) as well as ethical reasons (Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism).
