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.

History


The kibbutz was established in 11 July 1945 near the depopulated Palestinian village of Yaquq and the supposed funeral place of the prophet Habakkuk.[1]

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.

Economy

As well as agriculture, the kibbutz also has a plastics factory, Hukok Industries.
