If I have Jacob (Israel) in territory and attack with rachel and do her exchange to Ben do I get to grab another son of Jacob because Rachel started the battle?

Jacob (Israel) - protect hand and deck from opponents. Once per turn, if your Jacob (Israel), Leah or Rachel enters battle, you May search deck or discard pile for a child of Jacob.

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: We should get the "ability activation order" section of the REG stickied so that answering this type of question is easy  :P

Quote from: REG pg.14
Whenever a character (or group of characters) are played in battle:
1. Verify the rescuing/taunting/attacking/blocking/defending status of the characters in battle and
the players involved in the battle.
2. Activate all abilities in the order written on the card EXCEPT those with effects that add a
character to a battle.
3. Activate all gained abilities in the order gained EXCEPT those with effects that add a
character to a battle.
4. Activate all abilities on any equipped weapons EXCEPT those with effects that add a
character to a battle.
5. Activate all abilities with effects that add a character to the same side of battle. This includes
steps 1-5 for all new characters added to battle, in the order added.
6. Verify the begins a battle/blocked status of the characters that are/were in battle and the
players involved in the battle.
7. Activate all abilities with effects that add a character to the opposite side of battle. This
includes steps 1-7 for all new characters added to battle, in the order added.
8. Activate all abilities with side battle effects. This includes steps 1-8 for all new characters
added to a battle, in the order added.
9. Activate all pending abilities with triggered effects, following the order provided in the
definition of triggered effect abilities.

So, Rachel enters battle, Jacob notices but can't activate yet. Rachel exchanges for Ben in step 5, and once all abilities in battle finish Jacob's pending ability gets to activate.
ANB is good. Change my mind.
