Two St. Louis Jewish day schools, a Reform and a Conservative, have voted to merge.

The boards of the Conservative-affiliated Solomon Schechter Day School of St. Louis and the Saul Mirowitz Day School-Reform Jewish Academy backed the merger in separate votes Monday, according to the St. Louis Jewish Light. Passage required two-thirds majority of each school’s board.

The new school, to be known as the Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School, will open for the 2012-13 school year and accommodate 175 students from kindergarten through eighth grade.

Cheryl Maayan, the Reform Jewish Academy’s head of school, will lead the merged entity. Maayan and William Rowe, the interim head of school at Solomon Schechter, told the Jewish Light that the new school will be inclusive of Jewish students and support their families’ choices in observance.
