Elliott Dolin acquires and oversees numerous commercial real estate investments as managing partner of Pacific Prime Properties in Los Angeles. Outside of work, Elliott Dolin also takes time to contribute to various charitable organizations, including Ezer Mizion.

Ezer Mizion operates a bone marrow registry for persons of Jewish descent. This group of donors for bone marrow transplants numbers almost 700,000, including many members of the Israeli armed forces. It is the world’s largest pool of Jewish donors. As a member of Bone Marrow Donors Worldwide, Ezer Mizion has facilitated some 1,400 transplants.

Finding the right donor-patient match is difficult, as patients and donors must share the same ethnic background. Fewer compatible donors exist among those of Jewish descent than for those of other backgrounds; therefore, increasing the size of their registries is vital.

Bone marrow transplants treat a variety of illnesses, such as Hodgkin’s disease and leukemia. Donors can contribute the necessary stem cells by a process similar to donating blood.

A tireless supporter of children in need of aid and the organizations that help them, Elliott Dolin was once described by Rabbi Gavriel Hershoff as “truly inspiring,” in recognizing him for his efforts on behalf of the children supported by the Jewish education and guidance program Aish Tamid of Los Angeles. Elliott Dolin also dedicates time, effort, and monetary support to Doctors Without Borders, Ezer Mizion, and Chabad of California.

Chabad of California is a not-for-profit branch of West Coast Chabad Lubavitch, dedicated to supporting the community through kind acts steeped in traditional Jewish tradition. Now in its fourth decade of operation, Chabad of California consists of more than 200 centers and manages day and elementary schools and summer activity camps. One of the initiatives introduced by Chabad of California is the Friendship Circle, a program that links children with special needs, such as autism, with teenage and adult volunteers who visit, befriend, and support them on a regular basis.

The Friendship Circle works to maintain and expand a strong community based on friendship and support, and it has a volunteer membership base now exceeding 11,000. The network benefits more than 5,000 children with special needs every year, operating out of 82 chapters across the United States. The Friendship Circle is open to all children regardless of their religious affiliation.
