Eruvin 44 – עירובין מד

The Gemara says there were not enough people to (around Rav Chanilay) to reach the Techum.  Why couldn’t they simply walk him along until they all reached the Techum together; since even a mobile Mechitza is valid?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara relates that R’ Shimon bar Yochai would dress himself for prayer.  Tosfos (Shabbos 11a) points out that this must be referring to the recital of Krias Shema since they were exempt from tefillah.  The Gemara in Brachos (24b) says that merely covering oneself is sufficient for Shema, unlike tefillah which requires proper dress.  If so why was being covered by sand not sufficient?
