We're all for inclusivity at HuffPost Religion, but this takes pluralism to a whole new level.

While liveblogging our way toward Rosh Hashanah, which begins at sundown on Sunday, we stumbled upon perhaps the strangest Jewish New Year observance this side of Uman, Ukraine.

Bears at the Ramat Gan Safari park outside of Tel Aviv, Israel, were given apples, pomegranates, honey and other sweet fruits on Thursday. Jews traditionally eat apples and honey during this holiday season in hopes that the new year will be sweet.

While the Jewish Press wondered if honey is really healthy for bears, we're curious: Will these animals fast on Yom Kippur?
