Hukok (Hebrew: חוּקוֹק) is a kibbutz in Israel. Located near the Sea of Galilee and the cities of Tiberias and Safed, it falls under the jurisdiction of Emek HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 279.
The kibbutz was established in 11 July 1945 near the Palestinian village of Yaquq and the site of the ancient village Huqoq which was the supposed funeral place of the prophet Habakkuk. Yaquq was later depopulated in 1948.
The kibbutz was founded by former Palmach members, graduates of the Mikveh Israel agricultural school, members of the HaNoar HaOved VeHaLomed youth movement, and immigrants from French-speaking countries (France and North Africa) and South America.
As well as agriculture, the kibbutz also has a plastics factory, Hukok Industries.
