What's our story?
Style Mitzvah was created by international award-winning canine couture designer, textile arts designer and entrepreneur Anastasia Torres-Gil to highlight women in fashion in the U.S. and Israel to provide positive ways for young women to enjoy learning about style trends and innovative projects sponsored by Hadassah that promote women's civil rights and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
To paraphrase Pirke Avot and Nike; Don't worry about getting it done - just do it!
An attorney by profession, Anastasia prosecuted hate crimes, sexual assaults and domestic violence which fueled her passion
for empowering women.
Anastasia is both a Hadassah Leadership and Wexner Heritage Fellow. These opportunities, combined with her love for Israel, the arts and great ideas motivated her to create Style Mitzvah to showcase all aspects of Israeli design and innovation.
