Prime Minister Levi Eshkol told the Israel Cabinet today that plans were well advanced for two major meetings in Israel next year to mobilize world Jewry and to enlist capital for the strengthening and development of Israel.

Mr. Eshkol said preparatory meetings will be held here next month for a large-scale conference of potential investors and industrialists which will be convened here next April.

In September, he said, 200 Jewish leaders are to meet in Jerusalem to prepare for a 1968 conference of representatives of Jewish organizations throughout the world to be attended by more than 1,000. The meetings will bring together leaders of all the organizations represented in the World Conference of Jewish Organizations (COJO) which had its annual meeting here last week, the organizations composing the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the American Jewish Committee and others. Mr. Eshkol received a COJO delegation this weekend to discuss plans for the meeting.
