Halacha - difference between torahs
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

There is a difference between the spelling of the word "daka" in Devarim 23:2 whether it ends in an aleph or a heh. The poskim say that since both are based on longstanding traditions accepted on each side by generations of great Talmidei Chachomim, one may make a beracha on an aliya in a Sefer Torah written in the opposite spelling.
