ḤIBBAT ZION (Heb. חִבַּת צִיּוֹן), moshav in central Israel, in the Ḥefer Plain, affiliated with the Farmers' Union (Hitaḥadut ha-Ikkarim), founded in 1934 by members of the Ḥovevei Zion movement in Russia who settled in Ereẓ Israel prior to World War I and were allocated land for settlement only many years later. Citriculture and dairy cattle were its principal farm branches. The settlement's name is taken from that of the Ḥibbat Zion\>\> movement. Its population in 1968 was 303, rising to 390 in the mid-1990s and 443 in 2002. (Efraim Orni)
