As it is said: "And your people are all righteous; they shall inherit the land forever
Hashem planted a branch or "neshomoh" in each person. This "soul" is the part of a Jew which is holy and which has to be watched over carefully. Above, each soul is sitting on a throne in Heaven. Each has a crown and a canopy filled with the jewels of mitzvos (good deeds) which he collected while he was alive.
