Welcome! Was your battery completely dead (zero voltage) before your RAV was jump started (very unusual)? Were the jumping cables momentarily connected or even touched to the wrong posts (e.g,. positive to negative)? Seems that the computer chip system which governs many electrical functions on your vehicle many have needed to reset itself, for whatever reason.

After a ECU reset (due to dead /disconnected battery), the idle will often be low and shaky as the ECU re-calibrates and clears up after the car is run some.
Cleaning the throttle body and my idle sensor can help as well.
