Hazeroth (Hebrew: חֲצֵרוֹת‎) is one of the locations (or "stations") that the Israelites stopped at during their forty years of wandering in the wilderness. It is referenced in the Torah in Numbers, chapters 11, 12 and 33, as well as in Deuteronomy, chapter 1. "Hazeroth" means yards.

At Hazeroth, Miriam was afflicted with tzaraath. For more details, see Snow-white Miriam.

Hazeroth is somewhere north of Mount Sinai and may be at the place now known as Ain el-Hudhera.
