Susan Bernard (born February 11, 1948) was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for its December 1966 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Mario Casilli and her father Bruno Bernard.

Bernard had a sporadic film and television career, appearing for one season of General Hospital in the late 1960s and in small parts in series television. In most of her work, she was credited as Sue Bernard.

She posed for Playboy while working on the Russ Meyer film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. She was believed to be the first Jewish Playmate of the month, though in recent years Cindy Fuller, Miss May 1959, has claimed that she was the first Jewish Playmate. In an interview in the August 1998 issue of Femme Fatales, Bernard revealed, "I was the first under-18 Jewish virgin who was in the centerfold placed in front of a Christmas tree" and that she'd never been nude in front of anyone other than her mother prior to posing for Cassili, who had been one of her father's apprentices. Her father was photographer Bruno Bernard. As of November 2008, Bernard was working on three books about her father.
