Semitic reduplication

I don't know much about Semitic linguistics. Can someone tell me about reduplication in Arabic and Hebrew? I've noticed a lot of words like צמצום (tzimtzum), زمزم‎ (zamzam), سلسلة‎ (silsilah), زلزله (zilzilah) and am curious about what kind of etymological process creates these.
