Mishnah Berurah ( ) is a work of halakha (Jewish law) by Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan, better known as The Chofetz Chaim (Polandmarker, 1838 - 1933). It is a commentary on Orach Chayim, the first section of the Shulchan Aruch (laws of prayer, synagogue, shabbat and holidays), summarizing the opinions of the Acharonim (post-Medieval rabbinic authorities) on that work.

The Mishnah Berurah is traditionally printed in 6 volumes alongside selected other commentaries. The work provides simple and contemporary explanatory remarks and citations to daily aspects of halakha. It is widely used as a reference and is accepted as authoritative by Lithuanian Ashkenazi Jews, as well as by many other Orthodox Jews, particularly those closely associated with haredi yeshivas. The Mishna Berura is accompanied by additional in-depth glosses called Beiur Halakha, a reference section called Shaar Hatziyun (these two were also written by the Chofetz Chaim), and additional commentaries called Be'er Hagolah, Be'er Heitev, and Shaarei Teshuvah.

"Mishna Berura Yomi" is a daily study programme initiated by Vaad Daas Halacha and the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation. The study program proceeds either on a 2 1/2 year cycle ("Daf a Day") or a 5 year cycle ("Amud a Day") and includes a focus on each yom tov (festival) in the 30 preceding days.
