For those that need a quick refresher on the story, Joseph is one of Jacob’s twelve sons and is his favorite. The other brothers are jealous of Joseph’s talents and the fact that he has Jacob’s favor. Jacob has given Joseph a coat of many colors as a gift. Joseph constantly talks of the dreams he has and the brothers think he is a little insane. One day the brothers decide to make Joseph go away permanently and tell Jacob his son is dead. He is sold to an Ishmaelite and then to the well-to-do Mr. and Mrs. Potiphar. For being a slave he is actually treated quite well but Mrs. Potiphar is a bit of a drama queen so she accuses Joseph of sexual molestation after he does not succumb to her advances. He is thrown into a cell with other prisoners and thinks this is where he will be forever.

Pharaoh has heard about Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams and calls upon him to help interpret his own and then makes him a top advisor. Joseph tells Pharaoh a big famine will fall upon the land and when the brothers show up looking for grain, Joseph has to decide whether or not to forgive his brothers for what they had done to him. If you need any more plot, come see the show.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
