I want to join a Facebook group defined as Closed group. The thing is, I don't want any of my friends to know about my membership in this group.

For example, if I post a status in the group, my friends wouldn't be noticed (through their news feed) about it.

Is it possible?

Since you can never know what Facebook changes in the future the only truly secure way is using a separate Facebook account. – ThiefMaster Sep 11 '12 at 12:44

If you join a secret Facebook group your presence on the group is unknown and posts on the group are only visible to others in the group.

A closed group however only limits who can see the posts. Who is a member is public.

Either ask the group to switch to Secret or don't join.
