One day, Potifar’s wife saw a wonderful opportunity. Everyone was out celebrating a holiday, so she said to her husband, “Potifar, I don’t feel so good. I’m a bit under the weather (cough, cough, cough.) I think it’s best I stay home.”
“Good idea, my dear,” answered Potifar.
Finally, she got what she wanted – to be alone with Yosef.
“Yosef, let’s spend some time quality together, nobody else is home”, she said as she grabbed onto his coat.
Yosef understood what she was up to and was almost tempted to listen to her, when suddenly an image of his holy father, Yaakov, popped into his head. Yosef knew he must do the right thing.
Immediately, Yosef dashed out of the house, leaving his coat in the hand of Potifar’s wife.
