English term or phrase: Why is this night different from all other nights?
This is the first phrase that is said over during a certain section of the meal during the Jewish holiday of Passover. There are four other phrases to this which I will also be sending.

Kodėl ši naktis skiriasi nuo visų kitų naktų?

This is a literal translation.
Kodėl stresses "Why", i.e. for which reason.
However, the difference rather than the reason is implied.
Then I would suggest using "Kuo..." (roughly: In what does this night differ from all other nights?).The whole question:

Kuo ši naktis skiriasi nuo visų kitų naktų?
The context you have should help you choose between the two.
