Martha Wolfenstein (August 5, 1869 – March 17, 1906) was a Prussian-born American author. She was once described as "the best Jewish sketch writer in America.

In 1901 the Jewish Publication Society of America released her first novel, Idyls of the Gass. A German translation was later published in Die Zeit of Vienna. It is noted for its strong female characters, and sympathetic depiction of ghetto Jews. The work received praise from Henrietta Szold, Israel Zangwill, Simon Wolf, Kaufmann Kohler, and other Jewish public intellectuals.
