Abraham Harkavy (Avraam / Albert Yakovlevich Harkavy, Avraham Eliyahu ben Yaakov Harkavy, russisch Авраа́м Я́ковлевич Гарка́ви; * 27. Oktober 1835 in Novogrudok, Weissrussland; † 15. März 1919 in Petrograd) war ein russisch-jüdischer Historiker und Orientalist.

Er forschte unter anderem über Gaonat, Karäer und Geschichte der Juden in Russland.
