— Right side of tombstone facing North toward the city of Herborn
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 Latin inscription on the vertical right side of the tombstone is in memory of the former Calvinist University of Herborn, founded by John of Nassau, a brother of William of Orange, after his assassination in 1584. Exactly 400 years later, I discovered in my native Herborn, inspired by our great Hebraists, the 3D-structure of the Ten Commandments, and published my reconstruction of the Tablets of the Law in the Original Alphabet, invented by Moses.
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
PLAY Ha-Tikwah (The Hope), Israel's National Anthem
