Parod is a kibbutz in the Upper Galilee near Safed in northern Israel. It belongs to the Merom HaGalil Regional Council

The community was founded in 1949 by immigrants to Israel from Hungary, on land belonging to the depopulated Palestinian village of Farradiyya.

The name "Parod" is that of an ancient Jewish community mentioned once in Talmud Bavli, probably located at the site of Farradiyya. The name, which means "separated," might also hint at the community's location on the border between the Upper and Lower Galilee. The kibbutz was founded under the name "Gardosh" to honor a member of the founding nucleus who was killed in the Holocaust.
