Sammy Schwartz and Bassy Schwartz (Credit: Ulrich Studio)

Arthur and Betty Schwartz, Englewood, announced the engagement of their son Sammy to Bassy Schwartz, daughter of Robbie Schwartz of Far Rockaway and Naomi Rothschild of Brooklyn.

Sammy is joining the accounting firm Ernst and Young as a senior associate next month. Previously he was with PricewaterhouseCoopers. He graduated with honors from Queens College after learning for a year at Yeshivat Sha’arei Mevaseret Zion in Israel following graduation from Torah Academy of Bergen County.

Bassy is a human resources consultant for the Center Management Group of Inwood, New York. She is a graduate of Stern College for Women who learned at Tiferet Seminary in Israel after graduating from Midreshet Shalhevet High School in Valley Stream, New York.

The couple met through YUConnects, a program of Yeshiva University that pairs volunteer matchmakers with members who join the group. The connector for the couple was Judith Hecht, Sammy’s sister, who said, “There was something about Bassy’s profile that made me think she was the one for Sammy.” She was right.

A spring wedding is planned.
