Check for blown fuses under the hood and inside the car. They often blow from the surge when connecting jumper cables.

If this is the original battery, expect to need a new one real soon. Five years is all you can typically get. A good one should hold a charge long enough for the engine to start after the car was sitting for up to three weeks.
