Born in Ruzhyn in the Russian Empire (today in Ukraine), Repetur was educated in a heder, and was a member of the Dror and HeHalutz youth movements. During the pogroms he helped to organize Jewish defense groups.
In 1920, Repetur immigrated to Mandatory Palestine and joined Ahdut HaAvoda and the Haganah in Haifa. In 1922 he became a member of the Haifa Workers Council secretariat. In 1927, he was appointed secretary of the Labour exchange of the Histadrut labor federation. He also served as head of the Solel Boneh construction company.
In 1944 he was amongst the "B faction" that split from Mapai and later formed Mapam together with Ahdut HaAvoda and Poale Zion. Two years later he was arrested by the British Authorities during Operation Agatha and imprisoned in Rafah.
In 1948 Repetur joined the pre-state legislature, Moetzet HaAm (later the Provisional State Council), and was amongst the signatories of Israel's declaration of independence. He was elected to the first Knesset in 1949 on Mapam's list, but lost his seat in the 1951 elections.
