- Congregation Beth Hillel, located in Walden, NY, in the foothills of New York State's Catskill Mountains, is a small, nurturing congregation which embraces cultural diversity and interfaith families. While we are unaffiliated with any national branch of Judaism, our services follow the Conservative tradition. Our Hebrew School is affordable and comprehensive, educating our congregation's children from first grade through B'nai Mitzvah. Twice monthly Friday night service, holiday services and celebrations -- catered by some of the talented chefs in our congregation! -- are warm and welcoming to all.
