When you think of Lubavitch and Bears, you’re more likely to come up with Dov Ber than that illustrious trio renowned for that infamous Goldilocks incident. But this time you’d be wrong, the bears in questions are the Three Bears Restaurant, a Westport, Connecticut landmark since the early 1900s, which closed in 2009 after filing for bankruptcy.

According to Westport Now, Chabad Lubavitch of Westport moved into the town’s shuttered Three Bears restaurant in early January and was subsequently issued a town cease-and-desist order. Chabad has submitted a special permit and site plan application to the local Planning Zoning Department.

Lubavitch submitted the application Feb. 22, a day before the deadline, allowing the congregation to continue conducting religious education classes at the site, at 333 Wilton Road.

The matter is scheduled to go before the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) on April 12.
