After 27 years of service at the US Embassy, legendary media adviser Yael Feldboy is retiring on Friday, the US Embassy in Tel Aviv reported.

Yael worked with twelve US ambassadors - from Sam Louis and Thomas Pickering, to Dan Shapiro and David Friedman - and "nurtured" a generation of reporters, from Udi Segal to Yonit Levy.

"We congratulate Yael on years of great service to the US and thank her for her immense contribution to the relations between the two countries," the US Embassy's media department said. "We wish Yael all the best the world has to offer!"

"The direct connection we have with the US Embassy in Tel Aviv was very important to our daily journalism," Arutz Sheva Editor-in-Chief Uzi Baruch said. "Yael was extremely efficient and professional, and did everything in a kind and friendly manner."

A farewell ceremony for Feldboy was held in the US Ambassador's residence in Herzliya. Attending the ceremony were former US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro, as well as representatives from every Israeli media outlet.
