I'm a little bit confused. If Ezra re-established a singular text to the Torah, how is it that we have the Aleppo Codex and the Leningrad Codex and three different scribal traditions for Ashkenaz, Sefard, and Temani? How/when did this happen??

    To flesh out Harel’s comment. We’re taking about a period of well over 1000 years from when Ezra wrote his scroll to when these codices were written. Plenty of time for errors in transmission to have crept in.
