Reb Chaim’s halacha fits well with the Rambam and Shulchan Aruch, who opine that vesein tal u’matar is part of the actual berachah. Therefore, one who forgets to recite it on Friday by Minchah would have to daven two Shemoneh Esreis at Ma’ariv on Shabbos. The Rishonim who say that one must return to “shomeia tefillah” seemingly opine that vesein tal u’matar is not part of the berachah of “bareich aleinu” Thus, they hold that one who forgot to say vesein tal u’matar on Friday by Minchah would not daven two Ma’ariv Shemoneh Esreis on Shabbos.
