Help with the term PARNIARZ from Sefer Wyszkow #poland


Howard Orenstein
 

Dear Friends,
In "Sefer Wyszkow" appears this sentence:

"I am reminded of two teachers who taught me: the Lodzer and Parniarz."

pey alef resh nun yud alef resh zayen shin

"Lodzer" clearly refers to someone >from Lodz, but I cannot find any
source in which the term Parniarz appears.

According to the JewishGen Latvia Database, there is a place, formerly
in northeastern Poland, now Estonia, called, alternatively:
Pernov
Parnu
Pernau
Pernoi [Yiddish], Pernava [Latvian],Parnawa [Polish]

but, I do not know if that is the reference for Parniarz used by the
writer.

Thanks for any help with this mysterious word.
