A Haggadah printed in brown ink with many illustrations. Many original texts were incorporated into the body of the Haggadah.

Instead of 'The Torah spoke of four sons' is a text hinting to the pioneer movement: 'The redemption of the Jews from Egypt came from four things it was freedom from physical oppression, from material suffering, from social education and from the danger of degeneration". There are texts about political independence: "The independence and freedom which we have attained are only one of the stages in the nation's battle for freedom. Our war is against haters and enemies who have yet to come to terms with our political and national independence...". A reference to the Holocaust: "At the head of the festive table also stands the goblet of sorrows full of red wine in memory of those who brought us to this place through their blood." Reference to the State of Israel: "This year, we are celebrating in a free Israel, released from foreigners...". There is an interesting reference to the Arab and Nazi enemies together: "From the enemy's words at the gate, from Dan to Eilat the proud and free Jewish armies stand ready and prepared to protect the nation and the land from any enemy and assassin...how we wondrously beat the enemy, how the Jews prevailed against the seven Arab nations, included and led by the wicked nation of modern Edom..."

There is also a text referring to the establishment of the kibbutz and to Yosef Gardush himself, who did not merit to be one of its members: Today is five thousand seven hundred and nine years since creation, four years since the global massacre and destruction of six million brothers of our nation, three years since the death of our comrade Yosef Gardush, the second year of the State of Israel, ten days since joining the United Kibbutz Movement, we, the members of the Dror group in the name of Yosef Gardush, Hungarian immigrants who underwent terrible suffering in travels though Austria, Italy and Cyprus and in the presence of the representatives of the institutions, friends and comrades, are placing the cornerstone for the point of settlement on the national land in the Galil...we promise to be faithful to our goal..."

Kibbutz Parod is located in the Upper Galilee next to Safed. The founders of the Kibbutz were Holocaust survivors from Hungary and Transylvania, members of the "Dror" movement who reached Israel in April 1947 and were trained in the Dafna, Ein Charod and Maoz Chaim kibbutzes. The members settled in the Kibbutz in 1949. The Kibbutz was originally named "Gardush" in memory of the founder of the group of the Kibbutz's founders in Hungary, Yosef Gardush - a Holocaust survivor who died of heart problems before immigrating to Israel. Over the years its name was changed to "Parod" based on the name of the ancient Jewish settlement "Parod" which was located in this area.

The only Haggadah from this Kibbutz to appear in the Steiner List.
