Who says the Ribbono shel Olam's in Birkas Kohanim?

At Birchas Kohanim outside Israel, where it is only said on Yom Tov (Ashkenazim), we say twice a prayer for bad dreams. Why do we say the same prayer twice? Why is it not enough to say it once?

  • @GershonGold No. people have many bad dreams in between goes so they need to say the prayer a bunch of times. (I'm half joking about this in the sense that I don't buy it but I bet someone says it.) – Double AA Feb 28 '12 at 19:53
