Jerome Chodorov (August 10, 1911 – September 12, 2004) was an American playwright and librettist. He co-wrote the book for the musical Wonderful Town.
Chodorov was born in New York City, and entered journalism in the 1930s. He is best known for his 1940 play My Sister Eileen, its 1942 screen adaptation, and the musical Wonderful Town, which was based on his play. Joseph A. Fields was his frequent collaborator. He was Hollywood blacklisted during the McCarthy era.
His brother, Edward Chodorov (1904–1988), was also a playwright, author of the perennial favorite of amateur groups, Kind Lady.
