[[4]]In this her second solo show with the Andrea Meslin Gallery Michal Ronnen Safdie presents her latest body of work, Sunday Tuesday Thursday. The title emerges directly from the subject- Orthodox women and children at the beach on the days designated to them. Ronnen Safdie uses her position to bring us access to a cultural world most of us would otherwise never see. The work is touching, intimate, and literally full. Women and children saturate the scenes. It is hard even to find the beach or the water through the sea of people, of women, and the "overwhelming femaleness," remarks scholar, critic, and Harvard Professor Stephen Greenblatt who has an essay in the exhibition's accompanying catalogue.

Beyond the insider look are considerations of the female's role in the larger region. For all of these women we may begin to think of their borader role and voice at a time when their position is being reexamined.
