I attend a Sephardi shul that says Birkas Kohanim for shacharis every day and musaf. Should I say Ribono shel olam every time?


The “Ribono Shel Olam” is recited during Birkas Kohanim, only on the day following a disturbing or worrying dream. Otherwise, it should be recited on Yom Tov (because we assume that everyone has had a disturbing dream during the long duration between one Yom Tov and the next).



ראה: ברכות נ”ה ע”ב, תוס’ ד”ה כל “הואמרם בגבולין” בסוטה מ’ ע”א, שו”ע או”ח סי’ ק”ל, ובמג”א ש” ס”ק א’, ט”ז ס”ק ג’, פר”ח שם, ובאדה”ז שם, ועוד.
