Chachamim

חכמים – The sages is the term used by the Mishna for those we have come to call in Tannaim, the rabbis from the time of the Mishna (and baraitot). When “the Chachamim say,” this reflects a consensus opinion which the halacha generally follows. Today, we usually refer to “our sages of blessed memory” by the acronym Chazal (חז”ל).
