Spelling variations in original Hebrew Torah?

undefined

Rabbi Ari Shvat

Tishrei 18, 5775
Question
If there are few spelling variations in the Torah and God dictated the Torah to Moses, then were the spelling variations also dictated to Moses?
Answer
No, they are those few, but inevitable, mistakes, stemming from 3,300 years of human hand-copying of the text myriads of times in every Jewish community in the world.
