Zion

zionZion is the Hebrew name for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It was the site of the 1st & 2nd Temple, the most holy place in the world where God dwelt on earth. Observant Jews recite the Amidah 3 times a day facing Zion in Jerusalem, praying for the rebuilding of the Temple, the restoration of Temple service, the redemption of the world, and the coming of the Messiah.
