We all grew up watching 'Winnie the Pooh' and his never-ending quest for honey, wondering ‘do bears actually eat honey?’, ‘could it really be good for them?’ and ‘wouldn’t the bees attack him when he stuck his paw inside the hive?’

Unfortunately, this article isn’t going to answer those questions, but instead is going to share a touching story about a few Syrian brown bears at the Ramat Gan Safari outside Tel Aviv, Israel.

The folks at Ramat Gan Safari believe their beloved bears should celebrate Rosh Hashanah as well. I mean, who decided that only people need to eat something sweet to bring in the New Year?

The bears were provided with apples, pomegranates, honey, and other sweet fruits on Thursday, just ahead of the High Holidays.

Check out these adorable photos of Israel’s bears enjoying their Rosh Hashanah feast.
