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 2006 it had a population of 287.

The kibbutz was established in 1949 by immigrants from England and Hungary who were members of the Zionist Socialist youth movement Hashomer Hatzair.

The British writer Lynne Reid Banks lived in Yas'ur between 1962 and 1971.


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.[1]An Italian restaurant, Liliana's, is located on the grounds of the kibbutz. [2]
