All the other definitions are wrong - Zion is the biblical land of Israel (as opposed to modern Israel), not a hill, clan, person or group. A belief that Zion is the Jewish homeland and the best place for Jews to be, as outlined in the Old Testament or Torah, is known as Zionism. The proper, Hebrew pronunciation is Tsee-On. I know this because I am a Jew, FYI, so anyone who says Zion is, and I quote, "a male with a very very very large set of penis and balls", I am very offended.
Jewish Prayer:
And when they took the Ark (of the Covenant) out, Moses would say "The Torah will come out of Jerusalem, and Your (G-d's) word from Zion.

A kibbutz is an Israeli concept of a farm-residence. The basic principle is that anyone can come in, stay and be fed, as long as they work towards the upkeep of the kibbutz. One can stay for two days or for a lifetime. There are 278 kibbutzim (plural of kibbutz) in Israel. They are often strictly Orthodox Jewish - requiring no work to be done on Shabbat , for example. They are the basic Communist template, because often no money is exchanged in the residence/farming transactions.
