Levi Eshkol (Shkolnik) was born in the village of Oratov, Kiev Governorate, Russian Empire (now Orativ, Vinnytsia Oblast, Ukraine).

His mother came from an Hasidic background and his father came from a family of Mitnagdim.

Levi received a traditional education. In 1914, he left for Palestine, then part of the Ottoman Empire. He was a leading member of the Judea Workers‘ Union in 1915–17 and volunteered for the Jewish Legion in World War I. Eshkol joined Kibbutz Deganya Bet and married Rivka Maharshek. They divorced shortly after the birth of their daughter, Noa, in 1924. Eshkol’s second wife was Elisheva Kaplan, with whom he had three daughters, Dvora, Rivka and Tama.
