This very active group highlights women 55 and over.  Throughout the year, there are many delightful and worthwhile activities North Boundary offers to its members; they attend plays, benefit from thought-provoking discussions at their evening monthly meetings in the northern suburbs, and also host a book club, an annual fashion show, Shabbat dinners, and day trips.  

One aspect that North Boundary likes to focus on is fundraising.  The gross profit of their 2008-2009 Ad Book was $28,000!
