|Founded by||Hungarian Jewish immigrants|
Yas'ur (Hebrew: יַסְעוּר, lit. petrel) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located east of Acre in the Western Galilee, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Asher Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 856.
The kibbutz was established in 1949 by Jewish immigrants from Hungary who were members of the Zionist Socialist youth movement Hashomer Hatzair; they were joined in 1951 by another group of immigrants from England and in 1956 by another group from Brazil. The parents of Israeli historian Benny Morris were among the founders of the kibbutz, shortly after his birth.
Yasur's economy was based on textile and toy factories, which became unprofitable and closed down. In 2003 the kibbutz began a process of renewal and launched a successful membership drive. An Italian restaurant, Liliana's, is located on the grounds of the kibbutz.
