When I die, I, Dr. Jur. Ewald (Ed) Paul Philipp Metzler, alias Yehuda Eliyahu ben Avraham Avinu Moziani, want to be buried on the Jewish Cemetery in Herborn, Nassau, Germany. My tombstone is to have the very same measurements as the Ark of the Covenant, which according to Exodus 25, 10 and 37, 1 was 2.5 cubits long, 1.5 cubits wide, and 1.5 cubits high, which translates into 111.57 cm by 66.94 cm by 66.94 cm, the medium cubit being 44.63 cm.
The German inscription on the vertical left side of the tombstone mentions that I was Judge in my native city of Herborn, a position with life tenure that I gave up on June 12, 1978 in order to do legal research on the Tablets of the Law from the perspective of legal science. My experience as a judge, and my Master of Comparative Law degree proved essential to my work, since Moses himself was a judge best understood by his brethren on the bench.
The material of my tombstone, like that of the Tablets of the Law of the Torah of Moses from the Sinai, shall be granite with a specific gravity of 2.7. Its cubic content is 225 Omers of 2.22 liters each or 500 liters, resulting in a weight of 1350 kilograms, which is so heavy as to make it difficult for anti-Semites to topple the stone. The two vertical squares of 1.5 cubits on the east and west side of the tombstone shall be inscribed with my two following logos:
Richter am Amtsgericht Herborn a.D. Dr. Jur. Ewald Metzler, Master of Comparative Law.
As a legal scientist, I had the privilege to discover in 1983 in Herborn the 3D structure of the Ten Commandments, and succeeded in reconstructing the
two stone Tablets of the Law
