Married to: Unknown
In Leadville: 1888
Max Lewis was identified as involved in an unnamed dry goods business in the 1888 Leadville City Directory. He was a resident of 113½ East 4th Street that year.  Max did not appear in previous or subsequent city directories.
Max was listed as an attendee of a meeting of a Jewish group which called themselves “Bicher Cholum” in September of 1888.  The meeting took place at the residence of Jewish shopkeeper and merchant Abraham Isaacs.  This organization was likely a precursor to the Orthodox Synagogue Knesseth which opened its doors on East 5th Street 4 years later. His movements before and after Leadville, business name, exact role in the dry goods business, and his origin were not found by this researcher.
