The book of Deuteronomy contains the final words of Moshe, delivered to the children of Israel over a five week period, ending with his departure from the world.

Moshe opens his discourse by teaching the generation that is poised to enter and inherit the land of Israel that both rebirth and rebuilding are born out of chaos and destruction


 This is a lesson that, should we learn it well, can lead to great change for good on the 9th of Av, the day of the Holy Temple's destruction.
