Bnei Zion (Hebrew: בְּנֵי צִיּוֹן, lit. Sons of Zion) is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain around four and a half kilometres north of Ra'anana, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaSharon Regional Council. In 2007 it had a population of 1,000.
The village was established on 27 March 1947 by the Jewish Agency, and was initially called Gva'ot Ra'anana (Hebrew: גבעות רעננה, lit. Ra'anana Hills) before being renamed after Bnai Zion, the American organisation which helped found it.
Nature reserve 
Just west of the moshav is a 100-dunam nature reserve, declared in 1968. The reserve is a remnant of the natural state of the Sharon plain, rich in flora that grows well in iron-rich soil.
